Editor’s Note, 11/2020: Roads Less Traveled

This November, we’re re-discovering our shophouses and city through new experiences and points of view.

We’re inspired by discussions around nanotourism and new creative ways to experience our big little island city. Here are some fresh ideas and updates about how Figment is exploring Singapore anew:

  • We’ve been getting in on the staycations action by offering staycations at our boutique shophouse homes, on our website as well as with esteemed publications T Magzine and Expat Living. You can take part in the currently open draw for a weekend staycation at Library House at this link to experience shophouse living in Emerald Hill.

  • How are you using your $100 government-issued tourism vouchers? Top on our list of mini-adventures in Singapore is of course, exploring shophouses. One novel way to do so is on vintage Vespas with Singapore Sidecars, a social enterprise giving tours of heritage neighbourhoods (with a stamp of approval from Avengers director Joe Russo!).

  • It turns out running and cycling are great ways to combine some casual sightseeing with a workout. We’ve asked the avid runners and cyclists in our community to share some of their favourite routes from Figment’s shophouse neighbourhoods to downtown. See our city through their eyes (and shoes) here.
