Foto Friday: Colonial Architecture in Singapore

Every Friday I’ll be sharing a photo from someplace in my travels.

This week’s photo is of colonial architecture in Singapore.

Singapore has been rapidly changing over the past years, and because of this, it has what I consider some of the most interesting architecture in South East Asia. From modern, towering skyscrapers to shophouses rooted in colonial architecture, there are surprises around every corner.

As Singapore was once a British colony, the colonial architectural style is still seen everywhere. Intricate designs and bold colors complete with white trim and shutters to match. Admiring the architecture, especially downtown and in Chinatown, was the highlight of my afternoon.

    I’m really looking forward to visiting Singapore! The streets look so colourful and I hear the curries there are amazing. :)

      Are you headed there soon? The curries are amazing… and if you like seafood, def try the chilli crab!

      I wish I could’ve stayed longer, but I’m thinking of popping over there again when I go to KL in January.
