On a Street in Singapore

$14.45 $16.05

The title of this book was inspired by a song written back in the 1940s and performed by renowned artists like Bing Crosby and The Manhattan Transfer. The lyrics of the song provide a mystical, oriental description of Singapore with its reference to temple bells, lotus flowers and a traveller being drawn to the island by perfumes of Shalimar.


Singapore today still retains some of the old world charm and travellers will find traces of old Singapore in places like Chinatown, Little India and Arab Street. But Singapore is also a modern, cosmopolitan city-state with a multi-ethnic and multi-cultural population.
Besides tips on popular tourist attractions, this book will also provide the reader with an insider's view of Singapore by looking at life in the public housing estates where most Singaporeans live. The reader will get an overview of the history of the island, learn about local food and get an introduction to habits that might seem peculiar to an outsider.
