Singapore may very well be the Jewel of South East Asia, and a proud Asian Tiger, but some areas of the island, whether tourist attractions, retail opportunities, or modern developments, are just rubbish, to be honest. Here are my picks for the worst 5 places in Singapore.
5. I would have rated East Coast Park much worse on this list if it wasn’t for the delightful seafood that is served up in that part of the island, but anyhow ECP is now an old spot for families to enjoy some free playtime, as opposed to the beaches on Sentosa, which cost money to use.
The area is very dirty compared to other parts of Singapore, and the entertainment (often there is a carnival or some fairground rides here) is totally tacky!
4. Little India is part of Singapore that I have never enjoyed (further reading: Little India, Little Satisfaction), despite always trying to seek out a cultural experience or two everywhere I go.
In Singapore, Little India just seems like a tourist attraction that everybody needs to walk through before flying home, and the residents who live in this area (and nearby Arab Street) are noticeably more pernickety towards tourists than other Singaporeans.
