When traveling to new places, I like taking the metro to get around the city. It’s more convenient, definitely faster than the bus, and you reach your destination in a fraction of the time. For that, it wins my vote.
When I visited Singapore more than a decade ago, there were only a few stations in operation but since then, it has stations all around the city and has continuously expanded so that every part of this island is connected.
Here's a busy section of Singapore's Harbourfront metro system and it can get a bit crowded during rush hours but people-watching has always been fascinating to me.
Like most subways around the world, the Singapore metro is comfortable, reliable, easy and the carriage is remarkably clean. I took this during off peak hour, so it's less crowded.
In addition to this, the walls along the subways are creatively designed and eye-catching.
They can be delightful and inspirational for daily commuters as well as an attraction for tourists.
I agree with you. I also prefer taking public transportation during my travels definitely for its convenience and most of the time take you right there without getting lost.ReplyDelete

It's a clean place than I expected.ReplyDelete
In addition the design is modern and cool.
I take the tram to get around the city when I travel. Because I can check the city's expression from the tram. and there is not the tram in big cities in our country so I want to take them. Of course there is not the tram there I take the metro.ReplyDelete
Wow...their MRT still look very clean. Must be well-maintained. :)ReplyDelete

I use public transportation whenever possible -- particularly when visiting other cities. Terrific post and captures for the day! Hope you have a great week!ReplyDelete
I love Singapore public transport! It's as good as Madrid pt. Wish we had that here.ReplyDelete
Fantastic images of MRT.ReplyDelete
Such modern, lovely and very clean subways!ReplyDelete
I love the murals! I also like travelling by Metro although it can be a bit scary in non-English-speaking countries!ReplyDelete
I live in California and I have no idea why a subway system was never installed here. Our traffic is horrendous.ReplyDelete
Great shots. I love using the MRT in singapore too!ReplyDelete
