It's not everyday that you find adorable kittens at a cat shelter. The Kitten Sanctuary specialises in the rescue of pregnant cats as well as neonatal kittens, providing them with the appropriate care as well as a shot at finding a forever home. Entry to The Kitten Sanctuary costs just $20 per person, giving you an hour of play with the adult cats and kittens housed across three separate sections. Play with them as you like, pick up some useful information about cats and cat care, and maybe bring home a cat companion.
Bugis has gone through an overhaul over the years – transforming from a port for pirates and quarters for prostitution to the classy (and artsy) precinct it is today which includes new developments like Andaz, the National Design Centre and the modern National Library branch. Not to mention a smorgasbord of food options from all over the world – whether it's Michelin-star hawker fare, Malay cuisine or trendy cafés. While the area is evolving into a mini CBD, it hasn’t gone all business-like just yet. The colourful neighbourhood is a place of contrasts, with the historical monuments of Kampong Glam contrasting against state-of-the-art buildings like Parkview Square and Duo Tower. Bugis was also named one of the coolest neighbourhoods in the world, according to a 2020 Time Out global survey. So check out all these venues that make the heritage enclave so great.
