Top choices for lesser known telegram channels in Singapore
Our favourite lesser-known telegram channels in Singapore
For those who aren't too aware, telegram is an amazing chat messaging platform, which encompasses of many features apart from the layman texting.
We love stickers, useful telegram channels and of course - keeping up to date with the latest news. Also, we hate spam, advertisements and annoying notifications. However, with more telegram channels emerging, our personal experience is that we see many telegram channels are getting more spammy, pushing out more advertisements (not so organic ones as they started) and noisy. We understand how that feels.
Hence, here are our top 10 compilations of lesser-known telegram channels in Singapore. Don't expect the mainstream boring ones that you already follow. We've helped you to dig out the gems of these channels existing in Singapore that you probably haven't heard of - and of course smaller ones that are really helpful should deserve our support.

3. Divedeals.sg - daily deals update, comprehensive summaries and more
YES, we know - there's way too many deal telegram channels out there. And it gets tiresome to start following every single one of them and receive many many notifications.
