What to Expect?

The Authentic Toa Payoh Tour Experience

Want to know how Singaporeans live?

Toa Payoh is the place to start. From squatters’ land to Singapore’s heartland—it was once an extensive and notorious squatter district, with many of its inhabitants engaging in farming and pig-rearing. Today, this housing estate is self-sufficient and has a town centre buzzing with shopping and entertainment. During its transformation, industrial developments were all within the town to provide residents with jobs close to their homes, and schools were built around the neighbourhood.

In this authentic Singapore tour, we’ll also bring you to visit Singapore’s iconic HDB Flat - more than 80% of Singaporeans live in one - and design your very own.

Fun fact: Toa Payoh has played host to many dignitaries in the past, such as Queen Elizabeth II and Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao. Walk in the footsteps of these dignitaries by joining us on this Toa Payoh tour.
