Tanjong Pagar Conservation Area

Bounded by Neil Road, Maxwell Road, Peck Seah Street, Wallich Street, Tanjong Pagar Road and Craig Road, the area was given conservation status on 7 July 1989.  It contains mainly two- and three-storey shophouses of the Early, Transitional and Late Shophouse Styles.  The Jinrikshaw Station, at the junction of Neil Road and Tanjong Pagar Road is part of the conservation area.  You can see the Jinrikshaw Station at the bottom left corner of the $2 stamp on the right.

Today, many of these shophouses are used for commercial purposes.  Various restaurants and tea houses can be found in this locality.

This historic area near Chinatown is demarcated by Craig Road, Tanjong Pagar Road, Wallich Street, Peck Seah Street, Maxwell Road and Neil Road.
