The island’s traditional kampong-style houses are becoming a rarity as nearly 2,000 residents have abandoned their homes since the 1950s. There are less than 20 households left on the island, leaving many dilapidated structures around. Some of them are already enshrouded by the forest, while others possess personal belongings of previous homeowners, who may or may not have passed on.
Tampines, Bishan, and Novena MRT stations may be some of the busiest places in the day, but at night spookiness is felt by several staff at these locations. Formerly built on graveyards, there have been sightings of headless figures, ghost passengers and blurry figures carrying coffins. Tampines station itself had also experienced cases of suicide, fatal rail accidents and an infant death.
The 159-year-old tropical garden and Singapore’s only UNESCO World Heritage Site is home to a diversity of flora and fauna, as well as many mature heritage trees, such as Tembusu and Kapok, that are over hundreds of years old. Steeped in history since the British colonial period, the garden remains a beautiful place to immerse oneself in nature. Although the garden is opened from 5am to midnight, it is advisable not to visit the gardens when it gets too dark after sunset. There have been staff eyewitness accounts of strange sightings and hearings from the vegetation, and a treefall accident that resulted in a tragic death of a woman in 2017.
