Portsdown: A Little Peace and Quiet


Portsdown Road in Singapore is a less well-known neighbourhood that is quietly charming.

Portsdown Road near Queenstown, Singapore is a small neighbourhood of old colonial-style houses surrounded by lush greenery. The residents of this area consist mainly of expats who rent the places.

Near the start of Portsdown is a small dining place called Colbar or Colonial bar. The design of the eatery has a simple but rustic charm to it.

The estate is reminiscent of a little English village with street names like Wessex and Whitechurch Road. As you venture deeper into the heart of the neighbourhood, you can find huge tanks obscured by the bushes, and swings dangling from trees.

The neighbourhood is quiet and peaceful, and the atmosphere is relaxing. It’s a great place to spend some time away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
