As you wander along these streets, you’ll notice the eye-catching, ornate shophouses built in the roaring ‘20s, where the buildings were designed to reflect the era’s optimism and wealth. Perhaps the most stunning view is of the preserved terrace houses along Petain Road, designed to distinctively meld neo-classical Greco-Roman features with Chinese motifs in a style known as ‘Chinese baroque’. This road was also once the perimeter of raucous entertainment destination New World, where pugilists, cabaret acts and troupes of ethnic performers drew massive crowds in the ‘20s.
