  • This bookshop might be the best one I’ve ever set foot on. I didn’t find it easy to come across somewhere to buy a book in Singapore so I looked on the internet and found this one. Is a bit out of way...  more »
  • Lovers of books and cats must go!. It is a small room, cozy, with vintage decor but very exploited. Many books available and many local own printing... Here lies the real value of the site. You serve in a very friendly way and are awaiting you at all times without overwhelm you in no time. The prices are normal Europeans. The only downside is that it is a little difficult to find and they are 5-10 min walk from the metro station nearest (Tiong Bahru)

  • Really like this place! Got some interesting books by local Writers. Love the vending machine outside which you can buy "mysterious" book - you never know what you're gonna get
  • Small but really nice book store. I really like how they organize their books, making you feel like you are walking through a small alley of book. They have a small room inside where you can find interesting souvenirs. And there's an ATM outside where you can let god decide which book you should read.
  • Variety of niche books, a lot of those from local writers. The best place if you want to get a souvenir. And they have at least 2 cute cats there
  • i've been dreaming to visit this bookstore since year ago. coming along from indonesia, finally got time to go here. the vibes and ambience are perfect for bookworm. there's also fluffy cats going around the books. definitely will go back again here!
  • Unbelievable. Inconceivable. Semi-affordable books in Singapore? I will return to spend furiously. And the mystery book vending machine is also a wild ride.

Where to stay in Singapore

For leading chain hotels, head to the area around Orchard Road, considered the tourist center of Singapore due to its varied selection of rooms, good travel links, and tourist-focused businesses. At the eastern end of the road, you'll find more luxurious and expensive options, with hotels located in impressive colonial-era architecture. North and south of this main artery, backpacker hostels and budget hotels provide affordable rooms with basic facilities.
