An interchange between the North South Line and Circle Line, Bishan is an established neighborhood with attractive housing and a diverse range of amenities. Several top tier schools such as Raffles Institution (Secondary and Junior College), Catholic High and the Australian International School Singapore are in the vicinity. The Ministry of Education Language Centre, allowing students to pick up a third language, is located here as well. In the near future, a new healthcare facility along with two new residential developments, Sky Habitat and Sky Vue are expected to join the current 40 odd condominiums sprawling the town. Junction 8 Shopping Centre is right outside the station while Thomson Plaza is a short distance away, providing shopping, dining and entertaining services at your fingertips. At 62 hectares, Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park is one of the largest and most popular parks in Singapore. Besides the usual ponds, playgrounds and lush greenery, other features include a community garden, a vantage point on a hill, and a Riverside Gallery.
