Because for the urban traveler with business and global acumen, Singapore is the place to be.
Moving on, day three of the trip.
My first stop was the Sri Mariamman Temple. It is Singapore’s oldest Hindu temple built in a South Indian architectural style with a gopuram (tower). Located within Singapore’s Little India, this temple is beautiful and free to visit, just remember to take off your shoes before you enter.
Address: 244 South Bridge Road Sri Mariamman Temple, Singapore 058793
Then, I would recommend visiting the House of Tan Teng Niah, also located inside Little India. This region is definitely one of the most colourful regions in Singapore!
Address: 37 Kerbau Rd, Singapore 219168
Unfortunately, we had missed this because I was travelling with my elderly grandma, who preferred having lunch in Chinatown. I went back to Little India later that night though to get curry for dinner.
As we strolled through Chinatown, we arrived at the Thian Hock Keng Temple, which is a Hokkien temple that worships the Chinese sea goddess Mazu. This is a UNESCO site, so it is definitely worth a visit!
Address: 158 Telok Ayer Street | Chinatown, Singapore 068613
Minutes away, we arrived at the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple. This Buddhist temple that worships the Maitreya Buddha, a.k.a. ‘The Compassionate One’ or ‘The Future Buddha’. This temple is also very beautiful and worth a visit.
Address: 288 South Bridge Road, Singapore 058840
Next stop, the Red Dot Design Museum, a very futuristic art museum. Definitely worth the visit if you like art, I spent an hour here. The museum is open from 10am to 8pm on Mondays to Thursdays, and 10am to 11pm on Fridays to Sundays.
Address: 11 Marina Boulevard, Red Dot Design Museum, Singapore 018940
Next stop was the Suntec City Mall, where we did some shopping. Unlike the shops on Orchard Road, this mall houses more affordable and cheap brands, which I really liked. It is also where the Fountain of Wealth is, come give it a try for a touch of luck!
Address: 3 Temasek Blvd, Singapore 038983
