Singapore Day Tours | Hungry Ghost Festival on your Singapore tours

The seventh month of the lunar calendar is seen as a time where the gates of hell open, allowing the dead to visit the living. According to custom, these ghosts can get up to mischief if ignored so all sorts of offerings are made during this period, which is the seventh month in the lunar calendar. If you notice metal bins scattered around on your Singapore tour, they are specifically provided to contain the stacks of hell money and paper offerings, such as cars, watches and jewellery, that are burned by relatives to appease their deceased family members—taking care of their material needs even in the afterlife.

Here are some do’s and don’ts for you during the Hungry Ghost Festival!
