A thriving fishing village. Tanjong Pagar was once a thriving fishing village situated on a former promontory. In the mid-19th century, it gradually became an enclave for wealthy Chinese and Arab traders who migrated to Singapore. Bullock carts transported goods between the harbor and the warehouses along the Singapore River.
Beyond the wharves, several European nutmeg and fruit plantations dotted the place. These were gradually replaced by shophouses owned by the richest merchants. Rickshaw pullers were a mainstay in this area, transporting the affluent to and fro the city. So prevalent was their presence that in 1904, the government established a Jinricksha Station (translated as ‘Golden Rickshaw Station’) in the heart of Tanjong Pagar.

These have turned Tanjong Pagar into a district that blends heritage, business and nightlife all in one place.
