Singapore: Chinatown & Little India

Matty & I spent several hours shopping on Bugis Street. I am sorry to say that I don't have any photos. It was so easy to get lost among the vendors inside, that I told Matty he couldn't leave me. I was sure we would never find each other again. Crazy & chaotic!
I liked walking around here a lot. It was so clean & the people were friendly.☺

Different view of the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple

Sri Mariamman Temple
Oldest Hindu temple in Singapore.

Little India
Little India was not as clean or as friendly as Chinatown was.  We actually spent a good two hours (maybe more) trying to track down a fortune telling bird (two days in a row!). Apparently there are several of these birds & they are 'world famous.' No one seemed to know what we were talking about & we had no luck at all.

I loved this building! So colorful & happy.☺
Look for it on the corner of Hill & Coleman Streets.
