Singapore colonial

Singapore is a real melting pot. Much more so than NYC or any other city I have lived in, let alone visited. Not only can you find transplants from all over the world working here or walking the streets, but you can find some noticeable evidence in the real bones of the city. The Malay, Chinese, Indonesians have played an integral role in building this nation to what it is today and it shows in the layout of the city, the textiles, the food, as well as the architecture. The architecture of the Chinese colonial period is probably one of the more visual notable points, and luckily the government has done more in recent years to help ensure the old world is not completely engulfed by the new.
