Although we may technically be a school press, we at Raffles Press constantly seek to expand our horizons beyond Raja Block and the Marymount gate to venture into unexplored territory.

The Chinatown-Telok Ayer area might be more well-known for its markets and food, but you should not miss the two parks it contains that preserve the old Singapore in the middle of urban development.Continue reading “TouRIsts: Ann Siang Hill & Telok Ayer Green Park “
