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!

50% of RI students believe that MBTI (Myer-Briggs Type Indicator) is an accurate representation of themselves.
That’s the result of a survey that we recently conducted. While this percentage may seem large (or small, depending on who you talk to), it’s a nod to the growing popularity and trust Rafflesians have in this personality diagnosis.
