See & Do
Probably Asia's most famous shopping street, Orchard Road actually got its name from the various orchards and plantations in the area in the early 20th century!
Named after Joseph Balestier, Singapore's first American consul from 1837 to 1852, this area features some of the most traditional shophouses and their surprisingly harmonious mix of diverse design elements.
Way back in the 60s, Singapore was a racing destination for the Formula Libre & Australian AF2 rules and the Thomson Road Grand Prix circuit happened right here with its treacherous "Circus Hairpin" bends and "Snakes" section!
Ang Mo Kio
The name of the locality directly translates to "Bridge of the Caucasian" in Hokkien.
This precinct used to be a cemetry that once served the Cantonese and Hakka communities in Singapore!
If you notice, the streets in Toa Payoh are given Malay suffixes e.g. Jalan Toa Payoh, Lorong Satu Toa Payoh - this is because when the town was built, Singapore was a state of Malaysia then!
