About this event

Do you know that Simpang Bedok was a recreational area for British soliders based in Changi? Or do you know that Tanah Merah was once home to an ammunition depot and powder magazine?

My Bedok Heritage Tour traces the development of one of Singapore’s oldest public housing estate from a plantation backwater into a modern residential satellite town. The tour will cover iconic landmarks including Palelai Buddhist Temple, Simpang Bedok, Villa Haji Kahar and Man Fatt Lam Temple. Participants will hear endearing stories and memories of people who call Bedok their homes as well as historical events that take place in the community.
