Photo Essay: Singapore

The boat shaped Marina Bay Sands Resort in Singapore

Singapore is one of those places that seems to be everything crammed into one; distinct neighbourhoods, a stunning harbourfront, delicious food, large malls, crowded markets, a diverse history, upscale hotels and restaurants, and hawker centres for the budget conscious. There’s something for everyone in this pristine country, including captivating imagery for photography buffs everywhere.

The famous Raffles Hotel, originally opened in 1887 and extensively restored in 1991.
The streets of Chinatown.
Beautifully restored and coloured shutters in Chinatown.
The entrance gorupa at Sri Mariamman Temple located in Chinatown.
The spiked roof of the Esplanade Theatre at Marina Bay.
St. Andrew's Cathedral
A small boutique-shop street tucked away within Little India.
There are a lot of vintage and specialty shops located in the back streets of Little India.
It's hard to imagine the government almost had these buildings torn down in Little India before they realized the historical importance of preserving them.
Built in 1928, the Sultan Mosque can accommodate up to 5,000 worshipers.
The Central Business District (CBD) during sunset.
