  WHAT’S LIVING IN Ang Mo Kio LIKE?

Located in the north region of Singapore, Ang Mo Kio means “red-haired man’s bridge” in the Hokkien dialect, with “Ang Mo” being a colloquial term for Caucasians. Though it was largely uninhabited during the 19th century, Ang Mo Kio started welcoming settlers at the turn of the century when the rubber industry boomed and the land here was used for large rubber plantation estates.

Ang Mo Kio came into its own as a residential town in 1980. It's quite a tame part of the city, lacking the energy and liveliness of the city centre, so it mostly attracts families thanks to the many primary, secondary, and tertiary schools in the vicinity, as well as older residents.  

However, it does have many public bus lines as well as two MRT stations (Ang Mo Kio and Yio Chu Kang) servicing the area. These excellent transit options make it convenient to get elsewhere in the city, and this convenience does attract some younger couples.

With a variety of condominium complexes, apartments, as well as HDB flats (many of them newly refurbished) to choose from, affordable housing is most definitely within reach.

A large suburban shopping mall, Ang Mo Kio Hub, offers a variety of retail and restaurant dining options, and other neighborhood supermarkets dotted around the area serve residents’ everyday shopping needs.

Ang Mo Kio is bordered on the north by Yio Chu Kang, on the east by Serangoon, on the south by Bishan East, Marymount, and Upper Thomson, and on the west by the Lower Peirce Reservoir and parklands.
