Venice of Punggol

Punggol New Town is a Housing and Development Board (HDB) new town in Punggol, within the North-East Region of Singapore.

Located in the vicinity of the Punggol Jetty, Punggol was believed to have existed 200 years ago before Sir Stamford Raffles founded Singapore. The Punggol area used to be a well-established rural district dotted with farmhouses and farm structures, which were serviced by roads and dirt tracks. It was one of the oldest settlements in Singapore. The original settlers were predominantly Malays.

A new 4.2 km-long Punggol Waterway is built at a cost of S$225 million.
