When we think of our northern part of Singapore, our citizens usually can immediatley relate the northern living with a little rustic and care free lifestyle. Among these is the Woodlands Waterside Park, which flaunts one of the lengthiest jetties in Singapore, sights of Johor Baru as well as, in the distance, site traffic on the Embankment. One more relaxing area is Yishun dam, which lies along Reduced Seletar Reservoir in Yishun Avenue 1. Family members and also couples go there to appreciate the ocean breeze, have outings or perhaps takewedding images. The park and also dam are 2 of the areas highlighted in an ongoing competition arranged by The Straits Times. It asks for readers to name their preferred place on the island via Instagram. More than 300 access, birthing the hashtag #myspotinthedot, have actually been submitted, considering that the contest started on June 22. Various other popular selections are Sentosa, Pulau Ubin, East Coast Park and also Marina Bay.
The north could have garnered just 10 ballots, but it is not as ulu, or remote, as it utilized to be, stated veteran local and also housewife Miss Malini, 38. In the past, most people did their buying at the old Woodlands Town Centre, located just before the Checkpoint, she recalled. "That was one of the most famous place. Currently, there is Embankment Point, Northpoint and Sembawang at Parc Life EC." However, she is worried new growths and also high rise buildings are taking control of the greenery. Homemaker Miss Lee, 36, who has stayed in Yishun for nearly One Decade, delights in the peace: "It's not as busy as the rest of Singapore." While the north may not attract as several tourists, it has its prize-winning tourist attractions the Singapore Zoo, River Safari and Evening Safari at Mandai.
