[Introduction]

I traveled to Singapore in late June for the first time in two years. In addition to famous tourist areas, I went around spots I have never been to before this time. While I have lived in Singapore for a year and half before, I find something new whenever I revisit Singapore. In this article, I will write about Wall Arts in Little India as part of Day 5.

Move to Little India

Following the previous post, I moved from National Museum of Singapore to Little India. It was a lille bit far, but I decided to take a walk while enjoying scenery on the way.

Around Waterloo Street, I found a building with several wall arts.""

View around Rochor MRT Station of Downtown Line.""

There was “LASALLE College of the Arts” near the station.Singapore LASALLE College of the Arts

""

As it was an art college, its building was artistic.""

Little India

I reached Little India. In front of the building, there was “The Banana Leaf Apolo”, which was famous for its fish head curry.""

Whenever I visit Little India, I realize Little India has its unique taste in terms of building colors compared with Chinatown and Arab street.""

That’s it for the article about Wall Arts in Little India as part of Day 5.

You may have an impression that Little India is not linked to wall arts, but there are a variety of wall arts with Indian tastes. I thought wall arts in Little India added accents and flavors to Little India 🙂

By the way, I watched other wall arts in different countries before, so if you are interested in it, please see the following past articles.

“Street Art in George Town (World Heritage Site), Penang Island”
""

“Hong Kong Trip Part 5: Street Art at Sheung Wan (上環) and Central (中環)”

In the next article, I will write about Bugis as part of Day 5.
