Top 3 Things You Can Do at Queenstown

With the onslaught of recent BTO launches promising all things new – HDB just announced that the perennial housing estate will see about 5,000 new flats by 2027 – it is important to reinforce that Singapore’s oldest heartland is still brimming with life. Steeped with old-world charm and history, the home of the island’s first HDB block, polyclinic, sports complex and library still has tons of hidden treasures to offer its residents.

1. Tuck into world-class laksa

Experiencing some serious laksa cravings? Drop by the stalwart of laksa itself at the unassuming shop hidden away in the maze of retail shops on the first floor of Queensway Shopping Centre. Lovingly known as 328 Katong Laksa, you’ll see lucky patrons slurping on their specialty short noodles that can be eaten with just a spoon, no fork necessary. With a perfectly balanced mix of cream and spice packed into a hearty $4 bowl, it’s no wonder why they’re hailed as the ‘No. 1 Laksa in Singapore’.

How to get there: From Queenstown MRT, take bus 51 and after 5 stops, alight at Block 166. It is about an 8-minute walk from there.

2. Grab a bite with a bird’s eye view

Towering an impressive 47 stories, the Skyville @ Dawson should be your go-to weekend hangout spot. The best part? You can pick a picturesque spot with a killer view that can rival any high-end rooftop dining spots without the super expensive price tag. Don’t forget to bring along a delicious takeaway (laksa perhaps?) and a Bluetooth speaker to blast some chill tunes.

How to get there: From Queenstown MRT, it is about a 9-minute walk from there.

3. Buy your wardrobe staples at slashed prices

At the factory outlet haven that is Anchorpoint Shopping Centre, expect to find popular mall favourites such as Charles and Keith, Pedro and Cotton On for a guilt-free shopping spree. Nothing better than picking out clothes and shoes you’ve been meaning to get for that important presentation at heavily discounted prices. Definitely a worthy visit next time you find yourself at IKEA!

How to get there: From Queenstown MRT, take bus 51 and after 5 stops, alight at Block 166. It is about a 5-minute walk from there.

Move over Tengah and Punggol! Despite being the first estate where Singapore’s first HDB flat was built, Queenstown has plenty to offer in our BTO stuffed market and showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Packed with treasures that can satiate the tastebuds and needs of serious foodies and curious interlopers alike, exploring this culturally-rich estate is definitely a worthwhile weekend activity to add to your to-do list. Find property listings in Queenstown now!
