The growth of the tourist industry and the modernisation of many parts of Singapore, including offshore islands, have made many of these experiences impossible today and those of a nostalgic nature, and with experience of the past and present Singapore, may regret the diminishment of the ‘flavour of the East’ as a result of the invasion of the tourist tribes.
