Located in the Western region of Singapore, Choa Chu Kang, or more affectionately known as CCK, is an HDB town popular with families. The town traces its kampung roots all the way back to early Teochew settlers and the gambier and pepper plantations that flourished in the area.

Today, Choa Chu Kang is a large bustling town that comprises of five neighbourhoods or 'divisions' known as such as Brickland, CCK, Keat Hong, Limbang and Yew Tee. Modern-day residents enjoy a wealth of facilities and services from retail shops and parks to a community centre, playgrounds and library.
