Kampong Lorong Buangkok is a traditional village located in Hougang, a residential town in North-Eastern region of Singapore. Popular as the last remaining village on mainland Singapore, this rustic place provides a link to the past of the Lion City. The houses in this 'kampuang', inhabited by 30 families, are reminiscent of an earlier, quieter era, with wooden houses and tin roofs, lush green trees and dirt roads. The thirty or so families who reside here, lead a relaxed life in their 'kampung', in deep contrast with the skyscrapers so clearly visible behind their village.
Visitors often visit Lorong Buangkok to get the experience of an original 'kampung' before it is replaced with one of the many high rises. Visit the quiet little piece of land in the early mornings and take pictures of the charming little colourful houses against the backdrop of the grey skyscrapers. The residents of the 'kampuang' have many relics of the ages gone by such as old signposts with four-letter pin codes. While most of them are friendly, some like to keep their distance from the steady stream of curious visitors. Lorong Buangkok is a must-visit for all those who wish to experience the feel of an authentic Southeast Asian 'kampung' on mainland Singapore before they are destroyed forever by the constant urban development.
