A five-minute taxi ride from Tiong will take you to Gillman Barracks (gillmanbarracks.com), one the city’s major art spaces housing 17 galleries. Formerly a colonial army camp, it was transformed into a contemporary arts cluster in 2012 and is celebrating its fourth anniversary this month.
Showcasing temporary exhibitions by local and international artists – from Malaysian-born Heman Chong to Japan’s Yayoi Kusama – many of the showrooms are free to visit, so you can take your pick. With more than a half dozen food and drink establishments, visit the Naked Finn (nakedfinn.com) for a great lobster roll – so you can enjoy one last meal in Singapore before heading to the airport. BT
