Yio Chu Kang

Yio Chu Kang is a historic residential district in Singapore. There are no shopping malls, commercial buildings, or other than residential estates and schools in this part of Singapore. A section of Yio Chu Kang spans into District 28, and the two areas overlap.

Interestingly, the name “Yio Chu Kang” did not allude to any historical figures but rather to the Kangchu clan in Singapore, which means “a region ruled by the Chu [tribe] that positioned around a river.” The north of Singapore was divided and assigned to many Kangchu clan heads, each with their surname.
