You would have never thought a library would be on a ‘to-do list when touring a new country. However, as Singapore is outrageous in many things, the libraries there are gobsmacking too. There are a few libraries worth a visit and considered ‘crazy’ by our standards, however, there is one that really stood out.
Library@Orchard. This place has the widest selection of contemporary art, design, health, fitness, and so on. It’s worth a visit. Even if only for the Instagram story.
The Other Life
Don't ask us why, but apparently visiting graveyards is a thing in Singapore. The locals claim that there's a lot to learn about life while exploring the ones who have passed. Well, we're not going to argue about that one, but we do have one (cemetery) to recommend.
Bukit Brown Cemetery is the most visited one and has tour guides to lead you safely through the grounds. Spooky.
You Love It or Hate It
Durian has such a bad reputation, and it is said that you either love it or hate it. The outer part of this exotic fruit is spiky and unattractive while the inner part is soft and mushy. Still unattractive, though. A visit to Singapore is not complete without tasting this unique fruit.
It's known for having the most overwhelming smell food can have and is even banned from being displayed in some public places in Singapore. To sum up this topic, we've had it, and we hate it.
There is one thing you won't have to bring with you for this dinner, and that's your camera to upload a story of your latest meal. In Singapore, you can enjoy (one way of looking at this) dinner without knowing what you're about to put in your mouth. Why would someone want to do this?
The place to go to is called NOX, and you can actually have a really indulging experience. Think of the positive aspect. No issue with messy eaters and if you happen to get a green piece stuck between your teeth, no one will ever know.
This is one museum that is definitely unique to Singapore. Over 1,000 cameras are scattered, and the actual building resembles a giant Rollei camera. Like everything else, the Singaporeans are doing this big. You will find here everything related to the camera, from pistol cameras and retro photographs to new and old camera equipment.
This is a must on the list for photography lovers and a must on the list for anyone who wants to see how things look like when they are taken all the way.
