“Interesting but limited things to see”
Review of Kampong Buangkok

Kampong Buangkok
Reviewed 3 April 2017 via mobile

It is indeed a good idea to have a look at Singapore's last kampong before it disappears. Had expected it to be a little bigger- there are just few houses left and there was little going on when we visited. So we were done quite soon. Bring insect repellent.

You can imagine how life was in Singapore not so long ago by watching films (like 1965, 7 letters, Long long time ago, etc), but it's good to feel it yourself by visiting the last kampong before it disappears.

This would be a great place to visit while it's still standing. It soon will give way to the development of a modern city of Singapore. Reminiscence the close knitted good old kampong spirit. Wooden houses with zinc roof top. A lot of greenery.

We wanted to bring our kids there to see before its gone.

The kids didnt enjoy as much as we adults though.. brought back gd memories for my hub who used to stay in a kampung.

Should make a tripe there before its gone but also should not disturb the residents there.

Went there with my family. This place is not next to bus stop or MRT so we took taxi. You find houses from 50's and 60's along the dirt road. In Singapore where everything is usually so clean and well planned this place is something exceptional.
