The MRT series – Tanjong Pagar (EW15)

The original name of this place is hotly contested. But the word Tanjong (an aberration of Tanjung) means ‘cape’ while the word Pagar means ‘fence’ in modern translation. No surprise that one of the largest terminals of the port of Singapore is located here. A cape which is fenced off to secure cargoes stored within… heheh.

Definitely a very historic district with much more than the photos above show. Now the old railway terminal is undergoing a facelift for a while, so take a rain cheque for it. But there are many other things to see, such as the shop houses. Perhaps have a meal at the many Korean restaurants here?
