Touring a residential suburb is the best way to appreciate the life of a typical Singaporean. Developed in the late 1970s to mid-1980s, the Bedok Town Centre provides a glimpse of an archetypal satellite town, in which some 90 percent of the population live. Well maintained, high-rise apartments dominate, surrounded by communal facilities such as cinemas, wet markets, supermarkets, food outlets, department stores, sports facilities, places of worship, community centers and a library. Shopping here is a must, and haggling can sometimes bring prices down. Mingle with the townsfolk while savoring local delights in a casual, unpretentious atmosphere.
