  • The forest behind the Botanic Garden. Most of the parks in the Singapore are equipped with a promenade, but there was only one way to do this. There was an abandoned house about ten minutes from the main street.

  • The Istana Woodneuk. A former manor house built by the then Sultan of Johar which for his wife as a gift. Unfortunately it burned several times, where 700 people died in a fire. It is now grown in the middle of the forest. There is no regular way more there, you must fight through the Woods and bushes. I was about 5 meters and got it but only after closer look discovered. Unfortunately, it was destroyed quite as often on abandoned buildings, but it was nevertheless a very interesting Ausflug-

  • Quite an ordeal to find the place. Heard it was then closed down or something. Wasn't as scary as I thought but was an eye opening experience. Sad that these kind of places started to be demolished in...  more »

  • This place is great. Easy to get to, probably the only abandoned building in Singapore without any motion sensors or CCTV. I've been there twice, and the second time (on a Saturday) there were also 3 other groups of people there, so if you want the place quiet, it's best to go on a weekday. To get onto the roof, you must go to behind the main staircase on the second floor. There is a ladder that's quite stable which leads to the roof. By the way, there are also wasps/hornets around on the left side of the second floor(while facing the building from the front). Anyway if you plan to go, have fun! P.S. Even though the other reviewers have said it was taped and cordoned off, the tape is barely visible and is easy to pass. Don't worry about it. Visited during January 2017.
  • Good
  • Although it is overun by vegetation, it is still worth it to visit. If u know how ;)
  • Peaceful and quiet abandoned place, suitable for Urban Exploring and photography. Try not to enter after sundown and never go alone, Satanic Rituals have been held there... Here are 2 photos out of many from my visit... oh yeah, bring a flashlight too! :) (Oops i repost the pics by accident! sorry! :P) Update on 13/11/17, went back there 1 last time for exploring the place thoroughly, a photo shoot and military simulation/ cosplay, spent 1 hour there b4 having to leave due to possible authorities (SLA?) showing up. Got away safely. (DISCLAIMER: All weapons featured in pictures are non functioning firearms/ prop guns to be only used for photography and film shooting.)
  • A great hidden treasure in Singapore. Some of the structures there are unsafe, must be careful when walking. Be aware of fire ants.
