After my visit to Arab Street, I decided on a short 15-minute walk to Little India. Along the way, I got to see the parts of Singapore not usually on the tourist list, like this apartment block alongside a canal.
I’m guessing that this is a public housing complex. In fact, according to my research, nearly 80% of the residents live in government developed housing. They have different levels of apartments, and some look a lot more modern and quite nice, according to my Google search. I don’t know how this complex rates on their scale of available housing.
While it may not look very appealing, at least to me, the good news is that it’s safe. Singapore is universally praised for its safety. The buildings appear to be well maintained, and the area — clean. This is no slum, which unfortunately is the case with many public housing complexes in the U.S.
