"Hey, you must check out this..." Singapore Off The Beaten Path Tip by

Singapore Off The Beaten Path: 431 reviews and 571 photos


Hey, you must check out this Hindu annual festival. Thaipusam. (Pleeeeeasse correct me if I'm wrong - the spelling ONLY!). During this time, you will see many HIndu devotees showing their love for their Hindu god by WALKING ON FIRE and piercing their faces and bodies with the kavadi. Quite an interesting sight. Not for the frail and those with weak hearts. Anyways, don't miss this festival (held usually in the beginning of the year) when you're in Singapore.
