13+ Strange Sights At Seletar Estate and Aerospace Area

Seletar Estate and Aerospace area has quite a few hidden gems, so one day I decided to roam around the area to explore.

Here are 13+ strange sights I captured with my ruddy handphone camera, and a rough map of where they can be found.

2. A bus stop that never was, near an empty house

Want to rent your own black and white colonial house? It costs about S$2000+ a month to rent a house about 100+sqm.

3. It’s a plant, no it’s a tree, no it’s a bunch of woven sticks

Drive into the road shown by the red arrow above, enter the carpark and go right to the end.

Apparently parking inside is free (but subject to changes). If you’re cheapskate and hardworking, there’re parallel parking lots at the main road.

9. Abandoned building

12. A chill out area at the Seletar Wet Gap (what a name) and an underground drain

Turn right and wave hi to the army guys chilling at their own spot within the camp.

Don’t attempt to swim over even if it’s to catch a Pokémon.

13. A most rustic container kopitiam
