That seemed odd. As I kept walking, I quickly realized that they were all bundled around a bathroom and shower, and that's when I realized they were living there. (Yes, I was a bit slow on this one.) Is this actually allowed? I assume not, but is obviously tolerated? These tent setups look a lot more permanent than "move every day".
This is right along the beach just east of where the Siglap park connector ends.
Try going further south along the coast around Big Splash & Mcdonald outlet.
There are literately dozens of tents pitched next to the forested area. If you are a little more observant, you can actually see the "tenets" consist of a good mix of foreign workers and their fairer-sex "mates" on weekend outings.
I have yet to see any "white" inhabitants there, assuming that these species are a little more discreet.
Question is: can you tolerate the sight of a germinating slum?
Occupy the beach, anyone?
