Take a stroll down memory lane by seeking out these sights and sounds
Recently, Hougang has been under the spotlight for drawing in swarms of Pokémon hunters.
However, the residential town situated in the north-east region of Singapore, is much more than a gaming hot spot.
Once a forested area populated with pig-rearing farms, Hougang Town has since transformed into a charming heartland, full of great eats and buzzing activity.
According to the Housing Development Board (HDB), it is also the largest HDB new town in Singapore, with most of its commercial activities centered around the shopping malls.
To fully discover Hougang, we recommend taking a day out to explore these iconic spots:
1. Hougang Rainbow Flats
Location: Blk 316, Hougang Avenue 7, 530316
A vibrant symbol of Hougang Town, this rainbow mural was painted on HDB flats in Hougang as early as the 1980s, following the acquisition of the land at KangKar by the government.
