[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 Bugis as part of Day 5.

Go around Bugis

I moved from Little India to Bugis, which was full of Malay tastes.  Just like in Little India in the previous article, I will go around Bugis mainly to watch wall arts.

To begin with, as a recently developed spot, here is “DUO”.Singapore DUO

“DUO” is a multi complex facility opened in 2017. It included office spaces, shopping gallery, residences and a hotel (Andaz Singapore).

I ran across a wall are near Haji Lane.""

I arrived at Haji Lane.Singapore Bugis Haji Lane1

Haji Lane was one of the best photo spots around this area, so I found lots of tourists taking pictures.Singapore Bugis Haji Lane2

In addition, there was a pub with an artistic wall art.Singapore Bugis Wall art3

Unfortunately, it was cloudy this time, but when I visited Arab Street two years ago, I enjoyed Sultan Mosque with sunny weather. If you are interested in it, please see the past article.""

After I left Arab Street, a display of “Ice Lab” in Bugis Village caught my attention. So I stopped by it for a rest.Singapore Ice Lab1

Then, I moved to Bugis Street, a shopping arcade. A wall art was placed here as well.Singapore Bugis Street1

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

Speaking of Bugis area, it is Sultan Mosque at Arab Street that comes to my mind first, but I found wall arts around this area were also impressive.

To tell the truth, going around wall arts in Singapore was the “hidden objective” in this trip. I heard there have been a variety of wall arts developed recently in Singapore, so I gathered information before the trip and visited them. Since Singapore is a multiracial country, wall arts in Singapore have different atmosphere by the area. I will list up the related articles, so if you are interested in it, please see my past articles 🙂
