Urban Singapore

I grew up in Singapore, and spent almost my entire childhood there. Yet I was never able to appreciate what Singapore offered me, like beautiful skyscrapers and modern cities, perhaps because I grew up seeing them all the while. I was interested only in nature and wildlife and therefore never took my camera out when I was anywhere in the urban jungle. I always wanted to visit India, to enjoy its natural beauty. Well, the grass is always greener on the other side! After staying in India and experiencing what India really is like, my presumptions and attitudes switched. So when I returned to Singapore for a month in April 2011, I went ahead to enjoy the real Singapore- it's urban beauty, bustling cities and tall buildings.
Anyway, enough talking. Here are a collection of photographs of Urban Singapore!

A part of Vivo City in Harbourfront

Bridge leading to the famous Sentosa Island from Harbourfront

Orchard, the top shopping destination for most Singaporeans, and for many others around the globe!

The Cone in Wheelock Place, Orchard

And this is what it looks like from below:

Shots taken from the Marina Bay Sands. I've posted a lot more photographs of the Marina Bay Sands and more, in an earlier post, Singapore Cityscapes.

A fallen building!? No, that's just the escalators to the MRT train station in Novena.
