Unsung Heroes Series: "Builders of Singapore" Heritage Trail - Samsui Women


To commemorate Singapore's bicentennial, the Singapore Federation of Chinese Clan Associations (SFCCA) has launched the "Builders of Singapore" heritage trail series which will take participants on trails built by unsung heroes during the 19th and 20th century and to promote a renewed appreciation and understanding of the builders of Singapore back in the olden days.

Following the first trail which focused on the contributions of the Indian labourers, the second "Builders of Singapore" heritage trail will be happening on 12th October. Participants can look forward to embarking on a trail in the Singapore River and Chinatown vicinity, to admire the iconic monuments and infrastructure built by the Samsui Women. These monuments and infrastructure include the National Gallery (former Supreme Court), Bank of China Building, The Arts House (Old Parliament House), Asian Civilisations Museum. Participants will also catch a glimpse of the Singapore streets where the Samsui Women used to live - Nankin Street, Chin Chew Street and Pagoda Street. Through this specially curated trail, participants will be able to rediscover the contributions of these unsung heroes during Singapore's nation building.
