Singapore is a city of a thousand faces. From the exotic Little India district one suddenly emerges into the colonial splendor of the Parliament Building, the Victoria Theatre and the Empress Place Building, and there is the industrial area of Jurong. For evidence of still earlier cultures, visit the Thian Hock Keng Temple and the Sultan Mosque. To complete this diverse picture, Singapore also has its Arab Street and China town.
