Singapore Destination
 
 
 

Singapore is a mixture of cultures and religions, which can be seen and experienced in the various city quarters. Take a day to walk around and hop from one culture (or neighborhood) into another. The main areas are China Town, Little India and Kampong Glam / Bugis.

China town

Singapore’s Chinatown is located around the city center and can therefore be reached easily; MRT Chinatown station will drop you right in the heart of the action. Outram Park, Tanjong Pagar and Raffles Place are also all within walking distance, as is Clarke Quay and the Singapore River to the north. It is needless to say that Chinatown has a lot of places to eat.

Kampong Glam and Bugis

These are the two Muslim areas, neighboring each other. The areas are now known for their huge numbers of shops, restaurant, promenades and a bazaar to buy cheap items such as T-Shirts. Well, it is shop until you drop! Besides shopping and….shopping, there are only few things to see; the Sultan Mosque, Sri Krishnan Hindu temple and Kuan Yin Thong Hood Cho Buddhist temple. Bugis can easily be reached by MRT at the stations Bugis and Lavender. From Bugis one can easily walk into the next interesting area: Little India.

Little India

The main road of Little India is Serangoon Road, starting from Rochor Canal Road and continues northward to Serangoon itself. Little India can easily be reached through MRT (Little India, Farrer Park and Bugis Station). A must see is the Sri Veeramakaliamman temple, also located at Serangoon Road. This is Little India’s oldest temple and dates back to 1881! The area of Little India is most interesting to visit during Thaipussam or Deepavali, these are the two main Hindu festivals. Before leaving Little India make sure you eat at one of the traditional Indian restaurants and try the famous Indian specialty “fish head curry”.
