"Nee Soon (Yishun), Khatib Bongsu & Simpang" Yishun New Town by victorwkf

Yishun New Town Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 64 photos

Latest News: It is very sad to find out that the Khatib Bongsu area will be used by the Singapore army for training and out-of-bounds to the public from mid 2007 onwards. Another great loss to nature fans in Singapore!


Nee Soon (Yishun) used to be a very rural area in northern Singapore, but now it has been developed into a big housing estate called Yishun New Town. However, there are still some "off the beaten path" areas in this area, namely Khatib Bongsu and Simpang, which I will share with you.

Hope you find the information useful, and perhaps you can give comments and ratings. Thanks.

My latest visit to Yishun was in August 2006, managed to take some good photographs including beautiful views of the Lower Seletar Reservoir.

    I stayed in at a condominum near Yishun before on a visit to Singapore. The food court near the MRT was great. Nice rustic pictures of Yishun.

    Quite a relaxing looking part of Singapore, especially the Simpang Grasslands area!
