With extended stays becoming the norm and corporate travellers seeking a more authentic, local experience in a new city, Hougang is becoming a popular place to stay in Singapore.
There are plenty of things to do in Hougang, from exciting attractions to enviable restaurants and beautifully landscaped green spaces. With an up and coming foodie scene, exploring the neighbourhood meal-by-meal is the perfect way to spend your time in Singapore. From scrambled egg waffles to frog leg porridge, your taste buds will be tantalised every single day – the Hougang markets will have you covered, regardless of the time of day or what you’re craving.
Burn off those excess calories in the neighbourhood’s many parks and outdoor spaces. These green spaces are incredibly popular amongst local residents and tourists, with plenty of options for exercising, sightseeing or spending time with friends. There are plenty of places to visit in Hougang for niche activities, too, such as the trading card centre for meeting like-minded people, trading cards and playing board games.
