Directly facing Singapore’s seafront, the eastern neighbourhood of Katong has long inspired fierce pride and loyalty in its residents. Follow the artists from Urban Sketchers Singapore through the shophouse-lined streets of this former enclave of the Eurasian and Peranakan communities.

Marvel at the intricate details on each conserved shophouse, and the old-world charm of breezy terrace houses. Savour the mouth-watering cuisine, from the infamous Katong laksa, to kopi and kaya toast at Chin Mee Chin Confectionery, to fresh roasted chestnuts from a street vendor. Get a glimpse of Singapore’s past in the schools, religious sites and family-run businesses that have witnessed the sweeping tides of change over the years.

Capturing the neighbourhood by day and by night, We Love Katong is a timely volume that captures the area’s rich heritage, even as it welcomes new, modern establishments.
