Three Eclectic Faces of Singapore.

This small but sophisticated country suffices to infatuate ladies with sentimentality. Where am I? Welcome to Singapore. For those idly spending time cooped up at home, I invite you to three eclectic spots in Singapore.

Variegated Streets of Little India


@Sand and TsunamisFor veteran travelers, exotic scent exuding on the streets of Singapore shouldn’t be foreign. You guessed it—it’s the smell of spice.

Especially for experienced travelers that have visited India, the strong scent of spice should come as a pleasant surprise. In the late 19th century, a group of Indians arrived in Singapore to find jobs and created Little India, or “Tekka.” On small alleys between buildings are arcades of curry, scent, and crystals as well as famous restaurants in Singapore that will ceaselessly keep you entertained. Not only shopping but sweet Indian desserts will make you salivate.

Foodie Nation, Chinatown.


Chinese compose 75% of the population in Singapore. Chinese language is spoken more frequently than Malay and English as you can see in prevalent Chinese culture.

The amalgamation of Chinese culture and Southeast Asian culture provides various spas and boutiques and healthy food in Chinatown. Especially the alley starting from the Chinatown Heritage center to Singapore’s oldest Hindu temple, Sri Mariamman Temple, displays vivid history of Chinese immigrants and culture from 1905 to nowadays. Also make sure to check out the nightlife centered on Temple Street and Pagoda Street for Chinese food and cold beer.

Arab Street Full of Antiques


Find Singaporean Sultan Mosque, Masjid Sultan to curios from the Middle East on Arab Street. The street is a paradise for bohemian lovers and hippies to find unique items. If vintage item hunt doesn’t suffice, stroll around the street to visit about thirty different exotic shops. The place also offers a perfect photo spot bedecked with dainty decorations.

Forget about stressful reality and take a quick break to Singapore. There’s also Sentosa island, a world-class family resort with astounding attractions; Holland Village to check out dining and exotic cafes; Marina Bay bustling with casinos and Central Business District; and Clarke Quay to experience Singaporean Chilly Crap and sleepless nights.
