Good OH! Holland Village
GRAB A PIECE OF THE VILLAGE.
What is Holland Village to you?
If you've been in Singapore long enough, you'll associate Holland Village with these words: “expatriate, angmoh, atas, Sarong Party Girls...” Yet, the Holland Village of today is brimming with Westernised Singaporeans rather than Westerners. It's surrounded by HDB flats populated with local Singaporeans – it has been for years.
THE CHIP BEE TOUR takes you through the former colonial estate that still feels like another place, another time. You’ll begin with the walk-up apartments and end in a terrace house, encountering artworks along the way. If you love architecture and nostalgia, this is the one for you.
THE HDB TOUR explores domestic life on the fringe of this once trendy haunt. "Please stay where you are, I think you fit best there," said Samantha, on national radio about heartlanders coming to Holland Village. It makes you wonder why Holland V, the long- running Channel 8 drama, never talked about exclusivity, expats and enclaves.
THE HAKKA CEMETERY TOUR is a thoughtful exploration of the passing of time. We recommend this for individuals who like traveling solo, and want to discover things on their own. Expect to go it alone, as you will be separated from your friends, and dispatched to the unknown.
