Guide to Tampines Singapore: Munah Bagharib on the best foods, attractions, and hidden gems in the neighbourhood


Text: Janice Sim

It's hard to fathom that Tampines is just a neighbourhood — especially when it has practically everything that you can find across Singapore, culminated in a single enclave. Which is why when we asked actor, host, and comedian Munah Bagharib to take us through her stomping ground, she took on the task eagerly, like a proud resident would.

There's plenty of ground to cover but here's where you should really be visiting — according to Bagharib. Whether it be the best briyani in Singapore, a sizable nature trail, or an impressive hub with free movie screenings; it almost seems like you don't exactly have to leave the neighbourhood to live a full happy life in Singapore.
