Undiscovered Singapore

As mentioned in my previous post about Singapore, I have been lucky enough to visit this unique capital more than once.

However, during my last time I had some extra time and decided to go off the beaten path.

Me and my little Sister made some pretty discoveries..

  • The weirdest park theme

Haw Par Villa, known also known as the Tiger Balm Gardens, is at the same time very interesting and terrifying.

It recreates life after death in hell.

The founder, Tiger Balm tycoon Aw Boon Haw , had this idea to create a place where parents could teach their children morality showing what happens if they don’t follow the rules.

  • The Asian Notting Hill

Joo Chiat/Katong is a historic neighbourhood which preserves its Peranakan heritage.

The Peranakan Community are descendants of Chinese immigrants who came to the Malay archipelago.

Koon Seng Road is the place to head to admire some of the cutest heritage shophouses!

  • Ju Ming sculptures

Head off to Buena Vista metro for some free street art.

There are 4 groups of sculpture scattered around the metro exits which are part of the Living World Series of “Men with Umbrellas”.

A Hindu and a Buddist Temple

  • A religious melting pot

Waterloo Street is a is a two-way street which stretchs from Rochor Road to Bras Basah Road.

It is a unique street because it embraces four places of worship just few meters from each other!

You will find an a amazing Buddhist temple, a Synagogue, a Church and an Hindu temple.

Sri Krishnan Temple
  • Bugis Market

You might know already about it!

It is my favourite market in Singapore and I never miss a chance to pop by for some cheap but fashionable shopping and to drink amazing smoothies.
