What you can expect

On this tour, you will experience the local way of life in Singapore and get to know how the locals really live. Hear about the story of the Toa Payoh the Housing Development Board’s (HDB) town. This place was first a swampland, taken over by squatters and later a place for Singaporeans to rent a place to live.

While strolling around the area, check out the quirky dinosaur playground located outside of people’s apartments and snap some photos of this cool place.

Have you heard about the legendary tree shrine in the center of Toa Payoh and the stories around this spiritual tree? From how strange things happened during the development of the area to how many believers and non-believers visit the tree every year, I'll tell you all the intriguing facts!

Walk in the footsteps of Queen Elisabeth II and visit “Y" Block apartments. Hear about the development of the area from the 60s to now, and how Toa Payoh is an example of the old shops mixing with the new shops, building, and eateries.

Get to know more about the area’s religious background and how everyone lives together in harmony. Here you will see a true representation of Singapore as a nation in a typical HDB setting.
