Be amazed by the stories of the movement of kampong people living at Boon Keng and Kallang River!
About this Event

Take a walk with us around the Boon Keng neighbourhood to explore the rich Kampong History, Brick Kilns and developments along the Kallang River.

Learn about how the Kampong villagers travelled across Singapore as they are being resettled in the 1800s. Explore the movements of the people in Kampong Kuchai, Kampong Hock Soon and Kampong Koo Chye as they go about living their everyday lives. Hear the stories of the resettlement of people living in the HDB flats. The tour also features exclusive visits to one of the oldest charitable healthcare institutions in Singapore: Kwong Wai Shiu Hospital and the first Sikh Gurdwara in Singapore: Central Sikh Temple (both visits are subject to availability).
