A Day Out: Kampung Lorong Buangkok, Singapore’s Oldest, Last Surviving Village

What is life like in rural Singapore?

There are no plans to preserve this site, so visit while you still can.

The origins of Kampung Lorong Buangkok — Singapore’s last surviving village — dates all the way back to the 1950s.

Back then, Singapore still used only four digits instead of six for postal codes. And at the entrance of the village, an worn sign bearing the old four-digit postal code remains as a nostalgic reminder of yesteryear.

While there are still residents, mostly elderly folk, living in Kampong Lorong Buangkok, they welcome visitors to catch a glimpse of the place, and in doing so, take a peek into Singapore’s past.gem
