A List of 10 Unique HDB Blocks >

There’s a common perception that plain ol’ boring HDBs can’t hold a candle to the glitzy skyscrapers that dot our skyline.

So why don’t you do the same – slow down, smell the roses, and take a mini road trip around Singapore to discover the beauty of these unique HDBs.

​I’ve seen some of the clocks listed, and while some of the older ones do have more character than newer HDB, it’s still a bit of a stretch to call them ‘works of art’.
