Emerging into the searing heat, humidity and business of Little India in Singapore is rather a shock after quiet New Zealand. Even although it’s a Sunday evening the streets are teaming with chattering locals. The supermarkets have stacks of veg and fruit that are just mind boggling.
So the next day we head to the sanctuary of the Botanic Gardens. An oasis of greenery. They are rightfully proud of their orchids. Then it’s back to Little India whose streets are equally multicoloured in day light.
A fine wee stop over. Just the job.
