Learn about how the Kampong villagers travelled across Singapore as they are being resettled in the 1800s. Explore the movements of the people in Kampong Kuchai, Kampong Hock Soon and Kampong Koo Chye as they go about living their everyday lives. Hear the stories of the resettlement of people living in the HDB flats.
