Singapore is known for its witty and unique sense of honor, and here is another example to emphasize this. A small baker shop named its place Bread Pitt, hinting at one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, Brad Pitt.
This can be spotted in Maxwell hawker center, and it’s become a pilgrimage site for tourists. Imagine seeing the next sign in this store; “Bread Pitt’s Fresh-Baked Buns.” We really do appreciate the Singaporean scene of humor. Works for us.
Long Queues. Very Long Queues
We assume this rule is relevant for most places in the world. However, in Singapore, it means much more. Not only are there long queues where there is good food, but it will be impossible to find a place with good food, that doesn't have a queue. Are you still following?
What we mean is, there are so many food stalls in Singapore, so many tourist traps, and so many medium-rated places, that we suggest you follow the queues. So, if there's a queue, the food is good, if there isn't, it's not.
Otter City Life
Singapore has increased its otter population in recent years and they have become quite an attraction. They appear on the local news every now and then as they are beginning to adapt to their new habitat, the urban city of Singapore.
They are seen climbing ladders, eating waste, and gradually becoming part of the city's scene. They can be spotted all over the place, and for now, don't seem to be a threat to anyone.
We must squeeze in some enjoyable parts of the city. Take the Botanic Gardens, for example, The perfect escapism as far as we are concerned. The gardens have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2015, and are the only gardens on the UNESCO list.
They are the breathing lungs of the city, are one of the busiest tourist attractions, and definitely deserve a spot on our list. Like all things in Singapore, these gardens are wild.
The Sri Mariamman Temple in Singapore is the oldest Hindu temple. It is absolutely magnificent and nothing like you have ever seen before. There are plenty of reasons for it being on our list. Dating back to 1827, the temple is adorned with sculptures of mythological figures and is considered a national monument.
In 2010, over $4 million dollars was spent to preserve the sight. 20 artists from India were flown over to execute the reconstruction. It's unique, it's wild, and it's defiantly worth a visit.
