Ang Mo Kio
Ang Mo Kio is considered as one of the more newly developed places of Singapore. Over the years, the residents of Ang Mo Kio have seen the building of more flats and of the massive mall, now known as AMK Hub. However, the area of Ang Mo Kio is large with many nooks and crannies with surprises such as the Ang Mo Kio Library or wet markets to the convenience of the housing estates that are not so near to AMK Hub.
Ang Mo Kio also has a polyclinic to cater to the residents of the area.

Venerable old town
I simply love Ang Mo Kio, it has this venerable feel about it. Thus, it makes it difficult to believe that modern Ang Mo Kio as we know it actually had its origins in 1973, way later than towns such as Toa Payoh and Bedok.
The central reason why Ang Mo Kio is so well known today is in my opinon, it being the Prime Minister's ward. A firmly entrenched bastion of the PAP, Ang Mo Kio can be reliably featured in much social media posts by the PAP showcasing their engagment with the community and their efforts at bettering the life of their constituents.
With the political scene aside, Ang Mo Kio is actually a large town with all rounded facilities. It has all the main components you expect to find in a town, an MRT station and a bus interchange favourably located near to its main shopping mall (AMK Hub), a couple of parks, swimming pool, plenty of good schools in the region (take for example St.Nicholas Girls' School and Raffles Junior College) as well as all rounded terrain for the curious traveller. Whilst majority of the town is made up of HDB blocks, there are actually plenty of green spaces, not only in parks, but the surrounding grounds of the private estates as well.
