Hi, as specialists in off the beaten track places in Singapore, I'm delighted to see this list. I know and have been to them all except the kitten sanctuary & the voices for animals (which is more a website than an actual place!) but as I am a great supporter of animal charities I will look into both of these.

The Moon is an independent bookstore, café and private event space, nestled in one of Singapore’s heritage districts. Our aim is to showcase as much of the Earth’s diversity as our shelves can hold. From the events we host and to the event space itself, we are committed to making The Moon a safe and inclusive haven for everyone. If there is a book or title that you feel we should champion, or if you have any feedback as to how we can be better (because we will make mistakes), we’d love to hear from you.
