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. This is why our journalists have taken full advantage of the easing of community measures to head out into various corners of Singapore over the past few months.
We are proud to present to you TouRIsts — a special edition in which you can find reviews of trails, parks, museums, dining establishments, and everything in between. We hope you will have as much fun reading as we did writing.
Sit back, relax and enjoy the views as we take you on a tour to inspire and perspire!

On a sunny Tuesday morning, five Raffles Press members found themselves at the Bishan Sports Centre, ready for a workout of their… stomach muscles at Good Bites, a halal-certified cafe restaurant serving “delicious fusion western dishes at pocket-friendly prices”.
Good Bites is about a five minutes walk from Bishan MRT station. We would advise taking the sheltered route along Bishan Street 13, instead of walking along the sun-baked Bishan Road (as Andrea and Sophie learned the hard way).
