These iconic areas of Singapore are at the end of their days. Pay them one final visit and bid them goodbye
It's a sad but inevitable fact that all good things must end, no matter how loved and irreplaceable they may be. Here are five of such spaces that we think deserve one last hurrah.

2. Rochor Centre
The four coloured public housing blocks of Rochor Centre are a strong icon of the Bugis area, and have been housing residents and shopkeepers – some of whom are also residents – since 1977. This is one of the rare places in Singapore that retain the “kampong spirit” of the past.
In the later half of this year (we hear it might be in September), the entire cluster of more than 180 shops will be demolished to give way to the new North-South expressway. Its residents will be relocated to Kallang, and its stores around the Bugis vicinity.
We took a trip down memory lane to Rochor Centre, and found these interesting sights that make farewell even harder.
