  • Chinatown

Different outfits to celebrate diversity

Being a multi-cultural society, Singapore has a knack for decorating its public transport to suit festive occasions.

Netizens took the opportunity to share images of equally colourful murals for other festive seasons such as Deepavali.


Values celebrated during Hari Raya Puasa were also put up before.


Christmas-themed mazes for the little ones have also been spotted in the past.


Truly, Singapore is unique as we collectively showcase the various festivals celebrated by the different ethnicities.

Ushering in the niu Year

Though the Covid-19 pandemic has been a trying time for all, it’s nice to see that public transport operators are trying to brighten commuters’ mood through such colourful decors.

We can’t wait to see what other kinds of murals will be put up as we go through the different festivals in 2021.
