Despite the abundance of HDB flats in Eunos, this district retains the charm of an old-world marketplace. Alive with domestic bustle, Eunos makes you long for a time when mothers were still housewives and fathers still petty merchants. Coffee shops in Eunos are constantly crowded - people lounge there for hours, talking or playing chess. This is a place where the concept of working appears to be alien. At the corner of Eunos stands a beautiful mosque built in Malay tiered-roof style architecture. Diagonally facing this mosque is a golden Sri Lankan Buddha statue belonging to the Mangala Vihara Buddhist Temple , which is also located in the vicinity.

Eunos was originally known as Kampong Eunos ( Eunos Village ) or Kampong Melayu ( Malay Village ) and was established by Mohammad Eunos Abdullah in the late 1920s. The setting up of this kampong was the result of a successful appeal to the British government by the district's founder, who wanted a plot of land exclusively for Malays.

After independence, and particularly after the 1964 race riots, Eunos' exclusivity was officially removed as part of the policy of multi-culturalism and racial harmony. In 1981, Eunos was designated as a site for urban renewal. A portion of the district was cleared to make way for the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE). Later on, Eunos MRT was built in the style of traditional Malay architecture, to commemorate the district's heritage.

Residential Areas
Today, the estate comprises mainly HDB flats, coffee shops and small retail outlets. Kampong Ubi Community Centre, which is located in Eunos, conducts many courses that involve mainly Malay art and culture. Eunos Market Food Centre, which caught fire a few years ago due to a gas explosion, is now in operation again.

Commercial Areas
There are a small number of businesses in Eunos, which mainly deal with automotives and woodworks. For example, JDM Autocare and General Cars are located here, as is the Singapore Handicrafts Building. Small shops mostly deal in hardware, bicycles and provisions.
