Diwali is round the corner and all of you must be busy with the cleaning, preparing snacks and sweets and getting ready with the diyas and lanterns. Well, it is not just India but it seems Diwali is getting a global makeover with White House lighting diyas on the Diwali day. And now Singapore decorating its streets and train with beautiful murals themed for Diwali!
Let’s have a look at Singapore streets and trains with the beautifully adorned decorations –
The Land Transport Authority (LTA) of Singapore posted these gorgeous pictures a few days ago. The LTA proudly mentioned that they have launched their first Deepavali or Diwali themed train. They allured the public to experience and be part of the stunning decorations at Little India right inside the MRT.
In celebration of the occasion, LTA collaborated with the Little India Shopkeepers and Heritage Association (LISHA) to launch the Deepavali themed train. Decked out in this year’s Deepavali theme, the train features elegant elements such as intricate Indian jewelleries, the lotus and peacock – a symbol of good luck.
The themed train was launched by Minister for Transport, Mr. Khaw Boon Wan, and will run on the North East Line (NEL) till mid-November! Mr. Khaw Boon Wan loved traveling in this train for sure!

Singaporeans get ready to celebrate the Festival of Lights in a whole new illuminating way this year! Singapore indeed has livened up the spirits for Diwali with the artistic touch! If you are in Singapore, then you should definitely take a ride in this special Diwali themed train!
The decorations indeed are heart warming and creating a buzz all around already. With an eye to detail and splash of wonderful colors, the journey to and fro from work will certainly be a festive one. Kudos to LTA and Singapore for taking up such a great initiative!
