"Celebrate the Festival of Lights with your own unique Deepavali commute this year! Our #Deepavali themed trains and station are back with a different but equally stunning decoration - featuring majestic elephants and rangoli motifs that symbolise luck," wrote Singapore's Land Transport Authority on Facebook.
Land Transport Authority, part of Singapore's Ministry of Transport has returned with their Deepavali-themed trains for a successful second year running. They have come up with festive trains portraying images of diyas, lotus flowers, rangolis, elephants and much more. What's more exciting is that the Deepavali fever has not just attacked trains but an entire train station and five buses. The trains and buses will remain decked up for the whole of October.
Indians in Singapore need not feel away from their native as authorities have already bucked up to make them feel at home. The trains and buses are set to run primarily throughout Singapore's Indian neighbourhood 'Little India'.
This whole venture is a collaborative effort by Little India Shopkeepers and Heritage Association and SBS Transit Ltd. In this gallery, IBTimes Singapore has compiled a series of images of a spectacularly decorated Singapore for the grand celebration of Deepavali.
