Halloween is just around the corner and many are looking to dress up in their hair-raising costumes for a night of fright and fun. Other than the annual scare fests, here are some events and activities for an alternative Halloween night – with art, music, food and thrill.
1. Explore Abandoned Places in Singapore
In the recent years, a number of places in Singapore have been abandoned due to the constant sprouting of new facilities and buildings. Some of these abandoned spots have been left vacant since and have yet to be demolished. With eerie atmospheres and ramshackle buildings, the abandoned places are apt for a night of exploration this Halloween.
This Halloween, here are some of the spookiest and dilapidated abandoned places in Singapore that you can explore:
- Istana Woodneuk
- Seletar West Farmway 6 HDB Estate
- Dakota Crescent HDB Estate (Right outside Mountbatten MRT)
- Braddell-Westlake Secondary School
