More than I would have thought, as it turns out. On a recent local walking tour, I also discover that spending a couple of hours ambling around the heartland can be more interesting than I would have imagined. (Yes, even if the new cooling measures may be squelching the property market.)
It is probably not a tour I would have considered signing up for, to be honest. The “Evolution of Public Housing – An Architecture and History Tour through the Everton, Cantonment and Pinnacle Housing Estates” sounds very much like an educational tour, something that only tourists and architectural or history students would be interested in.
Indeed, most of the guests joining tour guide Yeo Pei Shyuan on the walk have tended to be expatriates, students and locals who have not lived in a HDB flat. (“Crazy Rich Asians,” we joke.)
