Kallang: Highways, Byways and Waterways

Kallang: Highways, Byways and Waterways

The Kallang area has undergone a tremendous amount of transformation over the course of its history, which dates back as early as the 17th century. Its coastlines and riverbanks have shifted, landmarks have been built up and torn down, and communities have come and gone.

On this tour, we move from the intersecting arteries of Nicoll Highway and its MRT station to the Golden Mile of Beach Road. We then follow the Rochor and Kallang Rivers on our way to the newest developments around the Kallang Basin. Our journey will uncover stories about people, places and ways of life that have already vanished or may soon disappear, while also looking forward to future plans and possibilities.

This is a tale about sheer grit, unbreakable will and his deep passion, unyielding struggle with society and oneself, to finally achieve glory for one's nation through football and coined one legacy unwittingly, known to all as 'The Kallang Roar' which is of nothing to himself at the end of it.

One path unfolds with whimsical re-imaginings of Wonderland Amusement Park and The Oasis; the other path unfolds with exciting adventures from our Police Coast Guard and Kallang Airport. Enjoy Kallang: The View from Fire City as we recall places and spaces of the past to reflect upon and cherish the present ground on which we stand.

Kwong Wai Shiu Hospital: Since 1910

Kwong Wai Shiu Hospital: Since 1910

Did you know that Kwong Wai Shiu Hospital (KWSH) was founded in 1910 and combines the use of Traditional Chinese Medicine and western medicine on its premises? Since its founding, the hospital has stood through various milestones in Singapore’s history and contributed significantly to society, including treating infectious diseases during colonial rule to World War II and offering maternity services between 1910 and 1965. The hospital has since redeveloped into a Community Healthcare Hub focusing on geriatric care. Along with its progress and development, the hospital seeks to preserve its history and architectural heritage. Today, four of its buildings (dating back as early as 1857) are conserved by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA). KWSH also houses a heritage gallery within its site.
