周日的安祥山游记

Google Reader里订阅的新加坡旅游局官方博客里最近发表了一篇关于安祥山的旅游介绍,里面的配图是很喜欢的风格,干净而多彩的街道,看上去就很清新。安祥山(Ann Siang Hill)就在牛车水地铁站附近,其实这里正是牛车水的一部分,以前还从没有来过,上周日就过去看了看,果然是闹市围绕的一片别具一格的宁静小镇。还是先分享维基百科关于这里的介绍,这里是19世纪大商人谢安祥买下的土地,于是这里因他而得名。关于这个词条暂时还没有中文的,先看看英文的。

Ann Siang Hill, located off South Bridge Road, was the site of the house and estate of Chia Ann Siang (谢安祥; 1832–1892), a wealthy Malacca-born Hokkien Chinese sawmiller… Most of the houses in Ann Siang Hill and along Ann Siang Road were built between 1903 and 1941. Ann Siang Road, which has elegantly restored shophouses today, was once the traditional home of clan associations and exclusive social clubs.
