Heartland Getaways is back!

The effervescent host Chua Enlai jumps right back to take viewers on another round of discovery through Singapore’s definitive HDB neighbourhoods!

Each week, Enlai heads to a new neighbourhood and check out what makes it so quintessentially unique!

And the best way to do so? Hanging out with the residents of course!

From delicious grub, to quirky residents and even uncovering the odd trivia that no one else knows about, Heartland Getaways will prove to be an eye opening journey through our favourite and familiar communities!

Just like in the previous season, each week, Enlai will launch himself on an unsuspecting town!

Mingling with the residents, his journey begins; mixing up the best with the understated!

Each episode, we take a fresh new look at the history and what makes each neighbourhood distinct and different from the others.

Quirky historic facts will be featured in each episode as well as food which is every Singaporean’s obsession!

Enlai will no doubt hit the local culinary haunts and taste the neighbourhoods’ signature dishes.

Every neighbourhood has a secret of its own too, and wherever there’s a secret, Enlai is sure to find it!

It’s neighbourhood trivia at its best! Unearth an urban myth in Yishun!

Discover a high fashion joint in the middle of Bukit Merah! And even visit some of Tiong Bahru’s hippest households!


This season Heartland Getaways will cover 11 neighbourhoods:
Tampines, Tiong Bahru, Bukit Merah, Pasir Ris, Potong Pasir, Eunos, Bukit Panjang, Choa Chu Kang, Woodlands, Yio Chu Kang & Queenstown.
