Totally rustic and the only kampong of Singapore. A rare chance for the next generation to view this post war kampong before demolished. Situated at Lor Buangkok.

It is not easy to find Kampong Lorong Buangkok. Indeed for a visitor it is actually quite interesting to take the bus just to see a bit of out of town Singapore.

We took a taxi there then for the return found a bus stop and asked for directions to Serangoon MRT on purple line. Bus 70 got us right to station.

The kampung is not very big, and not particularly welcoming (signs up asking not to be filmed etc) and you can understand why. We only saw one person in the 20 minutes or so there. You can get some great photos of the greenery and houses with a backdrop of sky rise but don't bother unless you have plenty of time. Our taxi driver laughed when we said where we are going and offered to wait while we visited because it will take us only 5 minutes.

We actually spent about 20 minutes here, and it is an interesting place to visit while it is still here. Wouldn't bother unless you are dead keen on seeing a few original buildings or, for the visitor, maybe interested in the ride, or can fit in with something else - going to zoo perhaps, which is also towards north of island.

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.
