Sania Pell - Colours of Singapore: Little India

This is the final installment of my family’s travels to Australia and Singapore. I took these images in Little India, the area where we stayed. Of out two days in Singapore we spent half a day wandering around temples, markets and soaking up the atmosphere. It was a little taster of India for the family and a reminder to me of a country I visited a long time ago.

As in India, the colours were so vibrant and interesting, the buildings charming in their detail and the temples enthralling in their story-telling through paintings and sculptures on walls and ceilings. Small shrines on street corners and, as in every area of Singapore, people enjoying street food. The street market was my favourite area with vegetables piled high and flowers strung in garlands.

After an adventure like this I still feel refueled and recharged. The joy of visiting friends on the other side of the world and experiencing a taste of Australia and Singapore will stay with us all for years to come.

    Little India is really colourful and refreshing. Whenever I visit Singapore, I always go to little India for shopping. Vegetables in vegetable shops are very fresh. Images are really lovely. Little India in itself is lively.

  4. Beautiful photographs, such bright colours – lovely to have spotted this on this particular morning as it is grey outside. You cheered up my day -thank you!

  5. i have never been to Singapore but I am a fan of Asia. Now the only thing that remains is to find time. Love the photos, great effort.
