Established in the late fifties, Kampong Buangkok is a very special place that provides a glimpse of what Singapore was like five decades back. The residential area was at its prime in the same period when other kampongs were making way for the development of tall residential buildings (also known as HDB flats), and it is the only kampong left that has survived time and the rapid developments of the country. Interestingly, it is also the kampong where the Chinese and the Malay families made peace, while the rest of country were consumed by the racial riots in the sixties.
