Singapore's last village. A place in urban Singapore, with a little or no shade of modernity.
Tucked away in a corner in urban Singapore is a slice of village living that has barely been touched by modern life. Kampong Lorong Buangkok is the last surviving kampong (Malay for village) on mainland Singapore.
The village is made up of wooden huts with zinc roofs, many of them empty, as most families have moved out. Chickens pecking away on the narrow dirt roads are a common sight. A picture of idyllic charm, the village is popular with photography enthusiasts hoping to capture a part of old Singapore before it fades away.
Walking in through the dirt road almost feels as if you’ve stepped through a time warp, because there is nowhere else on mainland Singapore where you will see rustic scenes like you will see here.
If you’re in Singapore and want to visit, do it soon because the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) has announced that it intends to “comprehensively develop” this plot of land and the land surrounding it – probably yet more blocks of public housing flats.
Off the main island of Singapore is the small island of Pulau Ubin, whose appearance is reminiscent of life in this highly urbanized country as it was many decades ago. Boredslacker gives us a glimpse through her gritty black and white photographs of the place.

Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.
