The best affordable and chill bars in the north of Singapore

People often think the north of Singapore is boring as it comprises mostly residential neighbourhoods. But if you know where to look, you can find a handful of wallet-friendly bars offering good food and drinks set in a serene ambience. Swing by one of these bars located around Woodlands, Sembawang and Yishun for a relaxing night out if you want to be away from the city crowd.
