Dabao Concept – Heritage café


When it comes to finding a quiet café to work or unwind, most people will think of quieter areas that are further from the bustling city center, such as District 2 or District 7. As District 1 is the epicenter of business and entertainment activities, it’s the last place you’d imagine yourself kicking back and relaxing, reading a book under a tree. 

But in the very heart of the vibrant District 1, there is still a little-known café with a garden where you can do exactly that.  

Boasting an elegant space with timeless interiors, Dabao Concept – Heritage is the perfect spot to while away a better half of your day amidst its charming setting.
