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.

This former police station, is a historically listed as a national monument which is located right along Clarke Quay. The facade of the multi-coloured windows stands out and makes for a nice photograph. Although a listed monument, it is not actually an attraction as such.

A simple concept. All the windows are colourfully painted with Bright colours. It is actually a Police station but an ordinary building is turned into a spectacular one just by adding colours. You can't miss it and you can't resist clicking few pics.

This building stands on Hill Street near the Singapore River & Clarke Quay. It has nothing special and is a police headquarter. But the facade multi-colored windows have turned it into a very colourful place.

It is a nice colorful building which always springs into the eye when visiting the Boat Quay area. It would be missed when it wasn't there anymore suddenly.

I walk past this building most days on the way back from the city but have never been inside (it's an office building, so not open to the public). It's pretty and colourful but not much more to it. Easy to reach location on the...More

The Hill Street Building is on the Hop on Bus route and is close to Clarke Quay so easy to get to. Even if you don't get off you can get a really good view from the bus as there are traffic lights close. We...More

The building is nice and colourful to look at as you walk by, however, that is as far as it goes as an attraction as far as I could see.
