The hidden rainbows of Singapore
So we may have more skyscrapers than cottages, and more glittery malls than green parks; but if you think the streets of Singapore are dull, you haven’t truly explored them yet. From shophouses to HDB flats, our streets are architectural rainbows brimming with our colonial and multi-cultural heritage.
Take your friends, family, or significant other out for day out to explore our visually pleasing rich heritage – and don’t forget to bring your camera!

1. House of Tan Teng Niah
Little India is lined with gorgeous street art, and this award-winning landmark is a must-visit for any self-respecting Instagrammer. In 1990, businessman Tan Teng Niah built this Chinese villa for his wife. The original walls were plain white, but its restoration for commercial use came with a new coat of paint, a super colourful one that we love today.
