Event description

Description

Have you visited one of Singapore's last remaining Singapore Improvement Trust (SIT) flats?

Do you know that the Redhill MRT Station was supposed to be constructed at the present-day Bukit Merah Town Centre?

My Redhill Heritage Tour traces the legend of Bukit Merah from a hilly backwater to a modern HDB town. Participants will hear first-hand accounts of this transformation from residents in Bukit Merah and get up-close to stall holders in Redhill Close markets and neighbourhood centres.

Level of Difficulty: 0.5/5

Who should come?

  • Everyone is welcome to participate in this exciting tour!
  • However, this heritage tour requires participants to walk for two hours long.

Duration & Meeting Place
