South Bridge Road, located in Outram, is one of the thriving city centres in the heart of Chinatown. This street is of historical importance as it served as one of the main thoroughfares linking the town and New Harbour (now called Keppel Harbour) and as a witness to the height of transportation development throughout the times, from the first steam tramway in 1886, electric trams in 1905 to trolley buses in 1929. Formerly home to import and export businesses alike, it stretches south from Elgin Bridge to Maxwell Road, Tanjong Pagar Road and Neil Road. The high traffic volume in this main street of Chinatown saw the rise of multi-storey shop houses which still exist today.
With the street’s very rich history, one can find a handful of historical buildings and important landmarks along the South Bridge Road. To name a few, we have Sri Mariamman Temple, Jamae Mosque, Central Police Station demolished in 1977 and replaced by the former Pidemco Centre in 1984, the Criminal District and Police Courts built in 1884 and torn down in 1975 and the Eu Yan Sang Building which housed the Eu Yan Sang traditional Chinese pharmacy since then. New developments that have surfaced include Fook Hai Building and Hong Lim Complex.
Among all these is a hidden retreat called AFOND Spa. Deriving its name from a French word “a Fond” which means in-depth, clearly and thoroughly, it is a day spa in Singapore that provides in-depth and thorough relaxation, rejuvenation and revitalisation to the customers. It offers a whole range of professional unisex Spa services, ranging from their signature Couple Spa which they’ve rightly earned a reputation of to massage therapy and facial treatments as well as waxing, slimming and firming services.
