API Describes 5 Most Haunted Spots in Singapore

API in the 13th Issue of Time Out Magazine describes the 5 Most Haunted Spots in Singapore.


1 Choa Chu Kang Cemetery
This is the last place in Singapore where the dead are still being buried. Visitors can see tomb exhumations and places with ‘freshly buried’ corpses. However, mediums warn people not to venture anywhere near the area at night, as angry spirits and lost souls still linger.

2 Old Changi Hospital
The Japanese army occupied this locale during World War II. After the war, the hospital went through many administrations and name changes. In 1976, the Singapore Armed Forces Hospital combined with the Changi Chalet Hospital to form Changi Hospital and thus was demilitarised. In January 1997, the hospital moved to its new location in Simei. Since then, Changi Hospital has remained empty and in absolute darkness. Some say you can still smell the antiseptic used during the war.

3 Kopi Hill aka Bukit Brown Cemetery
George Henry Brown, who arrived by ship in the 19th century, owned this plot of land, which was used to grow coffee. In 1872, three Ong clansmen from Bai Jiao village, China, bought it and donated it to Hokkien clansmen for dwelling, farming and as a burial ground. Some people claim to have seen a spectre here in the form of an old lady, clad in a red cheongsam and fanning herself while sitting on top of a tombstone.

4 The Pasir Ris Swamp
It’s one of two swamps in Singapore, the other being Sungei Buloh. During the day, crowds of students led by guides look out for mud-skippers, mud lobsters and crabs. When night falls, voices can be heard calling your name and the ghost from a fatal jump haunts the now-infamous four-storey Birdwatch Tower.

5 The Punggol House
Officially known as the Matilda House, the area was given conservation status on 21 February 2000. When it was set to be demolished for the construction of the LRT/ MRT line, a chain email told the story of three workers who died while trying to demolish it. The building is surrounded by trees, and a lady with long hair has been spotted sitting in their branches.
