Microcosm in Singapore, or not?

I have been pondering the cosmopolitan nature of street-names, or place-names, in Singapore recently.

For example:


  1. French Road
  2. Holland Village
  3. Cambridge, an area of residences near Farrer Park MRT Station.
  4. Spanish Village.
  5. Euro-Asia Apartments.

Near Eastern

  1. Frankel Estate.
  2. Armenian Street.
  3. Arab Street.


  1. Nepal Park
  2. Amoy Street (厦门街)。
  3. Shanghai Road.
  4. Irrawaddy Road.
  5. Burmah Road
  6. Penang Road.
  7. Kelantan Road.
  8. Parsi Road.
