Explore Kampong Lorong Buangkok—The Last Standing Kampong In Singapore

kampong lorong buangkok collage

Shrouded amongst the sleek concretes buildings and smooth cemented roads is a beautiful cluster of old and rustic houses that make up Singapore’s very last kampong.

While most of Singapore’s kampongs have given way to tall HDB flats, chic condominiums and massive shopping malls, Kampong Lorong Buangkok remains untouched by time and this little plot of land is a reminder of Singapore’s golden yesteryears.

One foot in and you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to a completely different country; low-rise single storey houses, old dirt roads and exposed telephone wires are surrounded by thick, lush greenery. If you’re up for a nostalgic experience, this is the perfect place to head to.

Dive Bars Collage

On the outside, dive bars may seem dodgy and probably not the sort of place you would ever want your folks catching you and your mates at. Tucked away in some of the tiniest cracks, these neighbourhood joints are often hard to find.

But a dive bar’s charm lies in the fact that it often sees a regular crowd, of which like-minded drinkers can feel a sense of familiarity and belonging. They may not be the most lavish—in fact far from it. But for some, these dive bars are considered home.

These are the spots where you can expect to chit chat with bartenders till the cows come home, occasionally witness some drunk-driven drama or simply get sloshed without being judged. As much as we love our bespoke cocktail bars, it’s time to give those a miss because dive bars are where the fun is at.

12 Night Markets In Taipei You Should Include In Your Itinerary

Taipei Night Markets

Be it your first time or second time to Taipei, one thing that you must include in your itinerary is a trip to one of Taipei’s night markets. We love night markets for the splendid array of street food (at reasonable prices), the lively atmosphere and simply the thrill of getting our hands on cheap clothing or goods!

Admittedly, most would only cater time to visit the more commercialised or popularised night markets such as Shilin Night Market or Raohe Street Night Market, but there are plenty of other undiscovered night markets in Taipei that deserve your time too. And, why only visit one or two night markets during your visit to Taipei when you could go to many more?
