Just south of the Singapore Botanical Gardens across Holland Road / Napier Road lies the beautiful and colonial Dempsey Road area which is worthwhile to explore. There are many antique shops, pubs and restaurants here which are housed in colonial buildings. This area used to be an army camp called the Central Manpower Base, but it has been converted many years ago. Very beautiful place worth visiting.
