Haji Lane is often referred to as Singapore's original indie neighbourhood. Lined with colourful murals, quaint boutiques and quirky cafes, this narrow lane is a haven for art and culture lovers. The place is buzzing with activity from morning to night and is popular among both tourists and locals for its lively shopping experience. And while you can get great pictures here at any time of the day, if you get here early in the morning, you can capture the quirky architecture in its full glory.
Sultan Arts Village
The Sultan Arts village is a small collection of art-studios and galleries. Slightly removed from the hustle-bustle of Kampong Glam neighbourhood, the artwork on the streets here makes this place unique. Murals painted by international and local artists liven up this otherwise quiet neighbourhood and also serve as a great photo-op.
Joo Chiat Road
A charming corner in eastern Singapore, the Joo Chiat neighbourhood is considered one of Singapore's first heritage precincts. This place offers beautiful insight into the Peranakan culture. With its mix of heritage shop-houses, hipster bars and colourful boutiques, an interesting juxtaposition of the old and the new. Not only can you get some great pictures here, but you can also learn more about Singapore's rich history and modern influences on its culture.
A trip to Singapore is not complete without a visit to Chinatown, which is a hub for history and culture enthusiasts. Originally a settlement for Chinese immigrants, today it is known for its blend of the old and new. You'll find traditional temples and old medicinal halls next to trendy bars and lifestyle stores. Singapore's Chinatown is in stark contrast to the rest of the city due to its lively atmosphere, and its bold, red and gold colour tones and euphoric streets make for a great backdrop for photographs.
Think beautiful temples, divine food and an amazing shopping experience. Little India is a bustling ethnic neighbourhood that shows off the best of Singapore's Indian community. While on one hand Singapore is known for being orderly and structured, Little India stands out with its constantly moving life. It is in this chaos that beauty thrives. Keep your camera ready because you don't want to miss an interesting sight in this colourful neighbourhood.
Charged with an electrifying atmosphere as the sun goes down, Club Street is one of the coolest places to experience Singapore's vibrant nightlife. The main attraction of this place is its hip dining and drinking culture. The street is lined with local pubs, niche boutiques and fancy restaurants, giving you a chance to see how Singapore comes alive at night.
