  • 15 minutes by bus from Serangoon train station, it is hard to go. It is an area where an old house is preserved as it is. People live normally. There is certainly a house of the one-story of the wooden which hardly sees in the Singapore today, and it is seen anywhere when going to the back alley in the country town of this Malaysia.

  • I visited with a family friend who was recce-ing the kampong as a viable tour spot. She is an older local who grew up in ye olde kampong days and admitted that the place really felt like the ambience ...  more »
  • The small group of huts is not easy to reach. Here you can see how easy it is to live in Singapore. It has a touch of reduced to the minimum and clambretaken huts made of the material that is present in the area. Still worth a trip. However, not for a short trip stay. We want to be able to go to the park right next door.

  • This must the the last real living kampung in Singapore. Most residents are friendly and they kept the surroundings neat and clean. A good place to show our kids on how Singapore was once were before it disappear. I hope the govt will preserve it. This is truly a national history location.
  • It's OK.... As it is the only existing village left in Singapore and I did see a board of no photograph so I guess the residents want their privacy... Though there is a mosque and a Buddhist temple in the kampong ( village) and gives a different feel of the place as full Singapore is very modern and concrete jungle.... This place give you a feel of communal harmony.
  • Village/kampong atmosphere. Take you back in time. Beware of domestic dogs.
  • Wanted to surprise my wife but was utterly disappointed. There is nothing to look at and definitely not a village. A couple of huts and the area is not clean either. On the opposite walking path, they dumped their human waste, which I was lucky enough to step in. I really thought this was a good spot to travel back in history and I believe if the government got involved, then they could do quite a bit out of what is left. Maybe make a real little museum village out of it and not a waste site.
  • Last kampong (village) on the main island. This place is almost frozen in time and has a very rustic and nostalgic feel to it. Must-go before the place is redeveloped. Permission for photos here must be received in advance. Don't expect this place to be spick and span.
