Travelling on the MRT does not need to be a mundane experience. With the recent opening of the Downtown Line 2 (DTL2) and the Downtown Line Art project, everyone will be able to savour the aesthetically pleasing architecture and decor of the stations while making their daily commute.
In case you have not taken any rides on the new Downtown line, here are 5 brand new stations to visit if you’re looking for something interesting to spice up your Instagram feed!
Bukit Panjang (DT1)
The first station on the DTL2 certainly is a sight to behold. Add a splash of colour to your feed with the scintillating blue tiles or try something a little nostalgic with the blown up, grainy photos from Singapore’s past.
Beauty World (DT5)
Ngee Ann Poly students, rejoice – you finally have an MRT station! Enjoy the therapeutic walk to school and maybe stop for a quick #instaworthy shot along the way.
Little India (DT12)
Look up while waiting for your train and you will find a stretch of tessellated reflective triangles watching over you. Inspired by the woven patterns in the traditional Indian sari, this awe-inspiring installation looks good from every angle and will definitely be the perfect addition to your feed.
A black and white interior adds a futuristic, Star Wars-esque vibe to this spanking new station. Perfect for those maintaining a monochrome feed or those looking for an #ootd shot background.
Don’t forget to check out the station’s towering exterior as well! If you love clean lines and edges, this is the place to go.
This 11 metre high sprawling artwork by local illustrator Li Xi Tan greets you as you emerge from your ride, and depicts an imagined Singapore in the year 2200. See something familiar? That’s because the artist has used several Newton buildings as inspiration for this impressive artpiece. Graphic designers will adore this, and the conveniently placed escalators add a second dimension to your photo!
