MRT Outram Park, Exit G
Dear Members and Friends,
From being labeled by the British as having some of the worst slums in the world, public housing in Singapore has become one of the most successful in the world and has been awarded 3 UN awards over the last 25 years. Come on this tour with our guide Charlotte Chu and learn about the hows and whys of public housing policies in Singapore.
About the Tour:
On the first part of the tour, we will visit the tallest public housing in Singapore and the world, Pinnacle@Duxton. The award winning development features the world’s two longest sky gardens. One of the highlight of the tour is to see the inside of a 4 room HDB flat within the development. We will also visit the sky bridge on the 50th floor where you will get a wonderful view of the central part of Singapore and even Bukit Timah Hill.
On the second part of the tour, we will be in Toa Payoh, one of the first public housing projects in Singapore, where we will visit the HDB Hub and see mock up of the various apartments and learn about why these apartments are considered as marriage “propositions”!

Outram Park MRT, Exit G¬†at street level where the Police Complex is. Outram Park MRT can be a bit confusing because it is an interchange station and also lots of construction going on now. The best is to take the purple line but if you come on the green line, get out at Exit A/C to street level and walk towards Exit G diagonally across the road.¬†
Please note: We will travel from Cantonment Road to Toa Payoh on the MRT, therefore please bring your EZ link card. Please note that the ending point is at Toa Payoh.
