This is the old Hill Street Police station with would otherwise be a quite boring and drab looking building if they hadn't painted the doors and windows in such vivid colours. So I think this building is fabulous and is now famous for it's look....More

Simply can’t miss this lovely colourful building which was previously the old Hill Street police station. This was the largest government building then when it was erected in 1934. In 2000, it became the building with the colourful windows. If you are interested in the...More

I just walked by on my way to the Fort Canning Park and the National Museum. It is a visually 'cute' photo op, nothing more, nothing less.

Located next to Old Hill St Police bus station. A great location for sight-seeing as it is full with historical feel but with a colorful twist. Within walking distance to Clarke Quay Central nearby, and located just next to Clarke Quay itself.

I did a jigsaw puzzle of this building some time ago not realising it was in Singapore and even better, right near our hotel. Yes it's just a building but it's so beautiful and historic all in one. The former police station was once considered...More

It's a beautiful colorful old building. The history of Singapore that this building saw. The police officers and their families lived in this building in the old days. Some excellent art work and galleries in the lower floors.
