I’m so far behind with my travel blog that I’m only just starting on the first trip of 2019!!
As it was a ‘big’ birthday year I got to chose where we headed for our long haul adventure – and it just had to be back to Vietnam. The place that set off my love affair with Asia way back in 2008.
We also decided to stop over in Singapore for a few days too. So let’s dive headfirst into these amazing places.
We stayed in the lovely Summer View hotel that was ideally placed to explore this hectic city.
There’s lots of fascinating districts in Singapore including Arab street and the colourful Little India district which is where I dragged the hubby first!
From multi-coloured shutter and incredible street art, to buildings so candy coloured that you want to nibble them, this area is amazing to just wander round and soak up the sights.
The incredible House of Tan Teng Niah is one such incredible rainbow hued sight.
The house was built in 1900 and belonged to Tan Teng Niah, a Chinese merchant who made sweets and sold them in stores along nearby Serangoon Road.
Gorgeous isn’t it! You can find this little gem by taking the MRT to Little India Station, taking exit E and following the snap happy tourists 🙂
Every wall and building is a colour clashing dream – even the toilet below is a pastel coloured delight!
