GILLMAN BAR­RACKS

Business Traveler (USA) - - 4 HOURS -

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.
