Singapore Photo Essay: Dhoby Ghaut

I would think one of the less appreciated and popular-for-the-smaller-reasons kind of place here in Singapore is Dhoby Ghaut. Yes, to everyone else, it’s known as the trio station, where purple, red, and circle MRT lines intersect. But, apart from that, I haven’t heard of any defining attribute of this area. Like if we say Chinatown MRT Station, we know it’s all noodles and wantons, or in Little India MRT Station, we all know it’s curries and spices. Or even Orchard MRT Station, we all know it’s the shopping spot of Singapore. It’s important, especially in traveling, to associate a place with something, so that you won’t get lost, literally and figuratively. Associating it with just the trio station (like how I did) might get a little bummer, hence the search for new associations.


But, Dhoby? Actually, there are a lot, but maybe these are places I'd know of as individual places and can’t easily identify it as Dhoby Ghaut. Like the Singapore Management University, Fort Canning Park, or the National Museum of Singapore. After seeing the Dhoby Ghaut Green and the Istana Park however, found another very good reason to associate Dhoby Ghaut as a good place to spend time with. These two areas, carefree as it is, can show an interesting and realistic side of SG, one that captures how the city enjoys its people and vice versa.
