This August has entered the Ghost Month and Singapore is enlivening the Hungry Ghost Festival until September 9, 2018. Speaking of mystical things, Singapore also has a spooky spot that might make you shiver.
We all believe in science and facts. But sometimes we cannot be separated from stories, reports, and urban-legend around certain areas. Here are some abandoned places that you might be interested in exploring if you dare!
Yellow Tower, East Coast Park
East Cost Park is actually a popular tourist spot for families in Singapore. However, who would have thought there was a tragic story behind it. The Amber Beacon Tower near Carpark C has become an active place for paranormal investigators . Some people who passed there claimed to have seen women asking for help at night. There is research that shows that a murder occurred at the flare, where a young woman died of a stab wound.
This place is famous in Singapore, because it is a place to commit suicide. From 2011 to 2012, six suicides and one attempted suicide occurred, and this place became a famous haunted place in Singapore. This triggered government intervention when religious leaders to pray for this place took turns in November 2011. Tragically, 6 bodies were found during the event. Bedok Resevoir is also a reminder that your life is very valuable.
Old Changi Hospital
Located on Halton road, Old Changi Hospital is a colonial-style building emptied and originally built as part of a military base. Previously, Old Changi Hospital was not a hospital but a barracks for the residence of British soldiers. After the attack on Japanese aggression, OCH was captured and more than 50,000 detainees were detained during the Japanese occupation. Often the sound of crying and moaning around him and the horrific appearance of shadow figures has been widely reported. No wonder this place has become one of the world-famous horror places. At present, OCH has been permanently closed.
Haw Par Villa
Known as Tiger Balm Gardens, this place contains old and strange statues depicting Chinese legends and folklore. This place is a former amusement park that was built in 1937. Who would have thought, the contents inside looked rather creepy. There are many statues that describe in detail the punishment of torture for sins committed by someone. There were rumors that Haw Par Villa was the location of one of The Gates of Hell , and that place was also very scary at night. Located at Pasir Panjang Road, you can get there starting at 9 am.
