About this Event

First in our new series of virtual tours!

Have you visited Singapore's last remaining Hakka ancestral hall?Do you know that the Home Ownership for the People Scheme was launched in Commonwealth in 1964? (where former PM Lee Kuan Yew took iconic photographs)

My Holland Village traces the evolution of Singapore's first satellite town from a rubber plantation in the 1870s to a bustling military village in the 1930s and a renowned expatriate centre and tourist attraction in the 2000s.

Participants will hear a first-hand account of this transformation from colourful figures in Holland Village and Commonwealth and get up-close to stall holders in Commonwealth and Tanglin Halt markets and hawker centres.
