Where to see stars in Singapore?

Postby PNGMK » Sat, 24 May 2014 10:11 pm

I've been fascinated by the app "StarChart" but find it hard to see stars in Singapore. The only place I've previously found half decent was St John's island. Has anyone got any suggestions?

A weekend in Tioman.... and lie on the beach at mid/late evning ... little waves maybe just lapping your feet, pair of binoculars, couple of tinnies...

Too much light pollution and haze here in Singapore, Suburbs are likely to be a better place.
To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late

Stinky Bay, the only place in Singapore, that I know of, that has a near-360 horizon.

It's a no-trespassing zone now of course, but I'm not sure how strictly this is enforced.
