  • Nestled in the quaint, hipster neighbourhood of Tiong Bahru, this humble bookstore boasts an awesome selection of Singaporean writers, and the most intelligent collection of good books for savvy reade...  more »
  • 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)

  • I'm a huge lover of books so it was such a happy surprise to find Books Actually one week after I moved to Singapore. A perfect bookstore with a great balance of snark, wit, humor and thought provoking reads. Can't wait to come back.
  • This shop is fabulous. The books are eclectic and strongly support local talent. Huge range, knowledgable staff, majestic cats and lots of interesting finds. They've also given generous 20% off vouchers with many of my recent purchases. It's one of a kind.
  • 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

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.
