Coconuts Singapore

From discovering secret neighborhood hangouts and taste-testing crazy food trends to spotlighting the wackiest kinds of phenomenon and unearthing little-known subcultures, the Coconuts Singapore team has its paws all over the Little Red Dot to showcase every nook and cranny of this unabashedly cosmopolitan city-state that we love. Fascinated by our country's culture, heritage, and history, we pen up-to-date, compelling reports that cover a range of buzzing topics such as current affairs, viral happenings, colorful characters, and important issues affecting different sectors of our community. All this with a generous heaping of snarky wisecracks and sassy pop culture references, of course — we’re in it for our faithful readers (and for the LOLs). If you need a witty dose of fresh and juicy news to distract you from your Monday blues, we're here for you; and if you're on the hunt for the newest and coolest spaces in town, we've totally got your back as well. With us, you can expect a no-holds-barred approach to stories – basically, we tell it like it is. When something’s cool, we’re all about going nuts over it and hailing it as the next big thing. But if it ain’t that great, you know we’ll be the first in line to give you the lowdown (safe to say, no PR speak here). So hop on board the Coco loco train and let us take you on a wild ride zooming through Singapore, from the good old heartlands (hello, Yishun) to the snazzy waters of Marina Bay.
