The colors of Little India in Singapore are as vibrant as its culture. No, I’m not talking about the colors of turmeric powder spices, but the whole neighborhood. It is alive with cultural excitement from its murals to its historical and colorful houses. And of course, the shopping scene here is one of a kind. However, we were not tempted to buy a thing. Not that we were stingy – it’s just that our closets still have clothes with price tags. Nope, we are definitely not hoarders. We are just waiting for the right time to wear those clothes. 😀 😀
In Singapore’s Little India, you will find not just cultural but also religious heritage. You’ll find Hindu temples, a mosque, and Buddhist temples.
So, before you go around and pose for the camera, why not start filling in your appetite first?
Well, that’s exactly what my friend and I did! We started with a feast of Indian food in a small, but cozy restaurant. We ordered too much that we were so bloated by the time we were out. And our photoshoot journey began…. 😀
First of all, we really had no plans where to go.
Our eyes were hunting for everything with colors! 😀
We passed by on wide and narrow, but colourful alleys.
We stood in front of unique, but colourful houses.
We stopped on street views that caught our attention. Or, you know, every time we cross the street. 😉
We had our picture taken in front of every mural (or graffiti) we saw. 😀
We wanted to go inside the Sri Veeramakaliamman Hindu Temple but it was closed. This is the city’s first temple in honor of the goddess Kali, Destroyer of Evil.
WHERE TO STAY IN SINGAPORE
Singapore is an expensive country. Fortunately for me, I have a friend who offered one of the rooms in her apartment. Since staying in hotels are expensive, the best option for budget travelers is, of course, hostels. You can book them via Booking, Expedia, and HostelWorld.
