Queenstown HDB Estate Guides

Queenstown Estate
Queenstown was named after Queen Elizabeth to mark her coronation in 1953. The Queen was Singapore’s head of state until the country achieved independence from its British colonial masters in 1965. Before WWII, Queenstown was an agricultural area with hundreds of people living in attap huts. At the time, the people's livelihood depended mainly on vegetable farming and pig-rearing.

Queenstown was the test bed for much of Singapore’s public housing initiatives and was thus the first satellite town to be developed in Singapore. The success of the new town gave rise to the development of nearby neighbourhoods such as Buona Vista and Holland Village, the latter of which has been dubbed as Singapore’s “bohemian enclave”, thanks to its hip and relaxed ambience.  

Some of the town’s amenities include food markets, entertainment and sports facilities, several notable tertiary educational institutions, a sporting goods shopper’s paradise in the form of Queensway Shopping Centre and the quintessential house of traditional Chinese folklore, Haw Par Villa. A unique park that contains over 1,000 statues of Chinese mythological characters, Haw Par Villa offers both tourists and locals a fascinating tour through Chinese folk history and culture.
