People's Park Complex is a high-rise commercial and residential building on Eu Tong Sen Street in Outram, within People's Park in Singapore.HistoryThe People's Park Complex was a commercial housing project undertaken by the newly formed Urban Renewal Department of the Housing and Development Board's Sale of Sites programme. The project was the subject of the programme's first sale in 1967.Located at the foot of Pearl's Hill, the site where the People's Park Complex currently stands was an open public park. It later became the People's Market or Pearl's Market with outdoor stalls which was destroyed by a fire in 1966.With a height of 103 metres (338 feet), the 31-storey People's Park Complex building was the first shopping centre of its kind in Southeast Asia and set the pattern for later retail developments in Singapore. The shopping centre was completed in October 1970, while the residential block was completed in 1973. Occupying 1 hectare in the heart of Chinatown, the People's Park Complex was the largest shopping complexes in the shopping commercial belt along Eu Tong Sen Street and New Bridge Road.2010 FireOn 21 April 2010, a storeroom on the fifth floor caught fire, resulting in a huge blaze and with hunted corners and triggering a massive evacuation. No-one was hurt in the incident, but substantial damage was reported by tenants caused by soot and water leakage. The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) subsequently found that the presence of such storerooms on that floor were not authorized; in breach of fire safety regulations.

  • There are a lot of small stores here where you can find all kinds of junk. It is connected to a large outdoor food court. Also is within close walking distance to the subway line and several Buddhist temples. Place is not very clean, and bathrooms were disgusting.
  • This place is funny. A bit like mainland China. Good fopd. A random mix of stores a d lots of surprises. Great for big nap, currency exchange and random mainland style food.
  • Its a old fashioned mall. The escalator and lift was not so useful. Since is a small mall thats not a problem. Its filled with lot of tour operators.
  • The glory days are way over for the mall. Only good for money changers nowadays.
  • This is one of the must-visit if you want to change currencies (especially to Chinese ¥ and Malaysian Ringgit), remit funds, buy 2nd-hand Rolexes, get your eye-brows tatooed, get your soles repaired... It's an amazing microcosm of the Chinese community, local as well as foreign, integrating beautifully, each showing off its distinct culture of wares and food. A must-visit!!

Where to stay in Singapore

For leading chain hotels, head to the area around Orchard Road, considered the tourist center of Singapore due to its varied selection of rooms, good travel links, and tourist-focused businesses. At the eastern end of the road, you'll find more luxurious and expensive options, with hotels located in impressive colonial-era architecture. North and south of this main artery, backpacker hostels and budget hotels provide affordable rooms with basic facilities.
