Kampong Lorong Buangkok – probably the last surviving kampong in Singapore. Kampong (or ‘kampung’) literally translates to ‘village’ from the Malay language, and is typically used to describe a laid back, rural, Malay-style village where single-story buildings with zinc or attap-leaf roof dwellings reside. Roads in a kampong are typically minimally developed or undeveloped.
It’s rare to find such nostalgic dwellings in modern land-scarce Singapore. This tiny village houses less than 30 families and the residences enjoy a rare slower pace of life than their urban contemporaries.
