Event Details

Lets us visit the defunct Hainan Village. The village was situated at Jalan Belang, off Old Upper Thomson Road. The name Belang means stripes in Malay, which refers to the wild tigers that once roamed on this island. There were reports of a man killed by a tiger at Thomson Road in 1890, while the last wild tiger went extinct in Singapore when it was shot at Choa Chu Kang Village in 1930.
