The ultimate City Hall guide for cyclists

Over the years, Singapore has been expanding the park connector network (PCN). Cyclists can now travel long distances across Singapore in a safe and conducive manner. But with long-distance riding comes hunger and thirst.

In this new blog series, we’ll be exploring the best food and PCNs across Singapore. Click on the link to check out our ultimate guide for cyclists for Ubi, Woodlands, Bukit Batok, and Clementi.

But first, City Hall.

As the centre of Singapore, City Hall is filled with tourist attractions, landmarks, bars and amazing food. What better way to explore Singapore than by cycling.

Cycling Paths
There are not many park connectors near City Hall but there are certainly still cycling paths around the area. 

An iconic route would be the Robertson Quay/Civic District Loop.

This route will take you to some of the most iconic places in Singapore like Gardens By The Bay and the National Gallery. 

Besides a good route, you’ll have plenty of photo opportunities as well. If you have some time to spare, you can even check out some of the attractions.

The whole loop spans across 18km but the scenery will definitely make the ride more worth it. 

We do recommend going during off-peak hours to avoid crowds!

Food Near The Area
City Hall is home to multiple malls. We have Funan, Raffles City Singapore and also, Excelsior Shopping Center (home to Mobot Central!).

Most of us are probably familiar with the restaurants and eateries in the major malls. So how about some under-the-radar eateries?You might want to check out Mandalay Style BBQ Restaurant in Peninsula Shopping Centre. This eatery specialises in authentic Burmese food. This cuisine is not common and not easily found in Singapore. Yet, despite this, the prices at this restaurant are relatively affordable!

Some of us don’t feel hungry after a good ride. So perhaps a cafe would be more suitable. Chijmes houses numerous cafes that are quite famous.

Sharing their passion for bread, Dough is a bakery, a kitchen and a coffee bar all in one. They’ve got a range of sweet and savory breads that will satisfy whatever you are in the mood for. Some particularly well-loved options include Strawberry Brioche and Matcha Mochi Bun. 

Most visit Dough for their korean inspired interior and lovely breads. But if you need something to really fill you up, they’ve got a selection of mains like pastas and burgers.

Take a trip to Japan with this modern cafe and teahouse, Hvala. The menu consists of treats and drinks of Japanese flavours. You’ve got Matcha and Hojicha options for almost everything on the menu. Their signature item would be the Tea Latte. There is also food available for those with a sweet tongue. Hvala has amazing ice cream and cakes as well. 

As a modern cafe and teahouse, Hvala has a peaceful, zen and simple interior that calms both your body and soul down after a nice ride.
