Technically this is part of Ang Mo Kio in terms of neighbourhoods, Nanyang Polytechnic is here to give some youthful vibrancy to what a mix of industrial and residential area this has become. Next to the station there is a tennis centre. Come practice or observe the training if you are into the sport. But aside from that, the large industrial zone is where people come to – well work!
By now, you might have noticed we have quite a few stations’ whose name end with a ‘kang’. This is derived from the Chinese character ‘港’. Do you know why these places have this in their names? And if you ever look up the map, you might notice they are mostly in the northern part of the island… comment on this post and we’ll tell you!
Part of the MRT series here.
