Far East Square (GPS: 1.28327, 103.84837) is a conservation area within the Financial District of Singapore. Bounded by Cross Street, Telok Ayer Street, China Street and the pedestrianized Pekin Street, Far East Square contains old shophouses that have been restored and readapted for present-day use. Covering an area of 16,550 sq meters (178,000 sq ft), the square has commercial space for restaurants, bars, shops, and other outlets catering mainly to the office crowds of the Financial District.

Within Far East Square, you can view the four different styles of shophouses: Early Style, Transitional Style, Late Straits Eclectic Style and Art Deco Style. These four styles appeared between 1840 and 1960's. Far East Square is approached through five gates, named after the five elements of the Chinese universe: metal, wood, water, fire and earth.

Within Far East Square is the Fuk Tak Chi Museum, the oldest temple to be built in Singapore, and today a museum.
