Haji Lane & Arab Street, Singapore – A Photo Diary

Why Haji Lane?

One of my favourite parts about Singapore was not just the cosmopolitan city-life, the vibrant crowd or the ethnic food; it was this street. I would be lying if I said that Haji Lane was the biggest reason why I fell in love with the city.

Being a big fan of quirky art, murals and colour; this street was a magical paradise for me. Multiple food stalls, cafes, jewllery and clothing stores – it had everything you can imagine with a touch of vibrancy.

I enjoyed dining at a Turkish restaurant eating fresh hummus with warm pita bread and dipping my sweet tooth with ‘The Rum Apple Pie” from the Windowsill Pies. Indeed a perfect day filled with some best adventure.

// After travelling to 3 new countries in the last 3 years; I've learnt so much! The biggest take back is completely avoid touristy spots..it's nothing but crowd and unnecessary noise. โ € โ € I had some free time after breakfast one day, and I randomly looked up places near me on Google maps and landed at Haji lane without any prior information. The place was relatively less crowded but so multicultural which I absolutely loved. I also finally got multiple vegetarian options in Turkish cuisine! Phew ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธโ € โ € Also this was the first time I approached random strangers to take a picture of me and it was so fun! (I used to be extremely shy when I was London/Toronto but faced my fears this time!) I asked this local Chinese girl to click a picture of me near a colourful wall. She was so sweet and enthusiastic that she suggested a lot more poses and backgrounds and completed a mini shoot for me! Some of my best pictures are clicked by her ๐Ÿ˜Šโ € โ € PS: Holding a bag that had one of the most delicious Rum infused Apple Pie by @windowsillpies Must try in Singapore! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ
