Can’t seem to find a café that you fancy? Well, TikTok can help you with that! Many of us might think that TikTok is only filled with Gen Z and younger Millennials dancing and making memes. On the contrary, most of them are exploring and rediscovering uncharted cafes all throughout Singapore!
Many of us don’t have time to explore because of our jobs and commitments. On top of that, the on-going pandemic and safety distancing measures kind of restrict us from going out more often to find hidden gems. However, just because we can’t go out as often, does not mean we can’t explore Singapore through our phones!
Sometimes these unique cafes are hidden in plain sight. You might never know it exists till you accidentally stumble on a TikTok about it. Maybe spending a lot of time mindlessly strolling through TikTok is not such a bad idea.
Here are five uncharted cafes you should visit!
