Our World- Singapore MRT

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.

Our World


  1. 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.

  2. Bonza photos, i especially like the mural in the 3rd photo because it reminds me of a jigsaw puzzle :-).

  3. excellent system & photos!

  4. It's a clean place than I expected.
    In addition the design is modern and cool.

  5. 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.

  6. Wow...their MRT still look very clean. Must be well-maintained. :)

  7. Singapore's Metro is indeed clean and comfortable. Nice designs on the wall too. I like! : )

  8. Very impressive! I like those stations. I also take advantage of the metro as a rapid and cheap transportation mean.

  9. This station looks really fresh and clean! Terrific captures!

  11. I like to take the metro when visiting cities too. Great shots of these clean and attractive stations.

  12. I use public transportation whenever possible -- particularly when visiting other cities. Terrific post and captures for the day! Hope you have a great week!


  13. I love Singapore public transport! It's as good as Madrid pt. Wish we had that here.

  14. Such modern, lovely and very clean subways!

  15. I love the murals! I also like travelling by Metro although it can be a bit scary in non-English-speaking countries!

  16. I live in California and I have no idea why a subway system was never installed here. Our traffic is horrendous.

  17. Great shots. I love using the MRT in singapore too!
