If you have been to Chijmes in Singapore, it is going to be hard to believe that this white historical building was once a Catholic school for girls. Constructed since the 1800s, Chijmes is well located at Victoria Street in Singapore’s central business district. As you enter Chijmes, you can experience that Chjimes feels like an enclosed village filled with artistic and Christianity atmosphere.
If you are wondering, Chijmes is pronounced as “Chimes”
Nicole thought that it might be a good idea to spend our evening in Chijmes to experience the culture & the artistic aura. So, with our DSLR camera & tripod, here we go. Chijmes is just located beside City Hall MRT.

Here are some photos of Chijmes. Chijmes looks beautiful, right?

Here are more photos I took
We visited Chijmes during evening time, however, I do recommend visiting Chijmes at night too. At night Chijmes will “lighten” up with romantic orange lights (just like Paris) and begin buzzing with activities and music. There are also many pubs & restaurants inside Chijmes for people to chill out at night. It’s definitely worth checking out.
If you are interested to dine in Chijmes, here is a list of restaurants & pubs.
After strolling & exploring Chijmes, and taking photo shoots, this pretty wrap up our evening at Chijmes. In a nutshell, Chijmes is a beautiful place to visit in Singapore! Make a trip down and take some photos!
