GI Group Survey Research On Tiong Bahru

Tiong Bahru is one of the oldest in Singapore. With narrow streets, it has a streamline Modern and Straits Settlement shop-houses which are about a single story-high. It is also one of the earliest houses developed by HDB (Housing Development Board). Many people could not afford such state of living. Only upperclassmen and the rich got to live in those houses. Because of this, many people lived in Kampung houses and in villages. Before it was built, Tiong Bahru used to be a cemetery.

In this well known area of Singapore, Tiong Bahru has some places and facilities that have been built over the years. Some popular places that can be found in Tiong Bahru are, Tiong Bahru Market, Tiong Bahru Plaza and many more.

Prior to this, the area was also known as "foot of the port" as there was once a fishing port located along Sungei Serangoon. Fishing villages and rubber and pepper plantations flourished in the area in the old days.
