If this is your first time to Singapore, you might find the addresses here confusing. There may even be Malay words in a street name. This article will help you to get past the knot of understanding addresses and postal codes In Singapore.

Sample addresses in Singapore

Here are two sample addresses:

Tan Ming Lee--------------------------Addressee

Block 123 -----------------------------Block or House Number

Tampines Street 33-------------------Street Name & Street Number (this is not a house number!)
