Covid-19 Updates:The current restrictions (between May 16 - June 13 2021) allow group sizes of up to 10pax per guide. Participants need to be in subgroups of 2 and stay 1m apart at all times. The walk is conducted in compliance with the safe management measures.Take a private guided trip to Singapore's last remaining Kampong village, where overhead cables hang above wooden attap houses. Follow Kyanta (your guide) along as he brings meaning to an otherwise unassuming kampong complex, sharing information on how Singapore transformed from a simple fishing village to the thriving city it is today. As he greets and chats with the kampong residents, you'll slowly get swept up in a sense of nostalgia and kinship over the now-forgotten Kampong spirit where everyone knew their neighbours well! At the end of the tour, challenge each other to old-school games such as Five Stones & Pick-up Sticks in one of the Kampong houses, as well as play zero-point and rubber-band skipping out in the yard.<b> Kids-Friendly </b>This is an enriching family trip out as it covers certain Primary 3/4 MOE topics, giving students the opportunity to bring their studies to life! Learn about the way of life on the kampong as well as how Singapore transformed into the high-rises today and the sacrifices that were made to achieve that — it is extra meaningful when parents also share their own personal Kampong anecdotes with their children!Do note that Kampong Lorong Buangkok is a residential area, and less so of a tourist attraction. Please be considerate and mindful when touring the premises.

Our guide Robin is very knowledgeable and we had a fun time learning from him. The boat ride was enjoyable too.

Great tour! The Kampong was really fun to explore... rich in history and lots of interesting plants. Our guide, Kyanta Yap was very professional and knowledgeable. He catered to our interests and kept it very engaging for my 10 year old. Highly recommend the experience, particularly since the Kampong is on private land and we would not have been able to access such a meaningful experience there otherwise.
