We spent a day there and really enjoyed it as it was so different and full of character. Our favourite place.

Took the kids to Little India for sightseeing and lunch yesterday. Little India is such a fantastic learning experience for kids. We took them to a traditional South Indian restataunt where they ate on banana leaves and ate with their hands. My 2 boys enjoyed the experience so much and actually Want to go back. This is such a fantastic... More

Was told this was a good place to visit but really we couldn't find anything interesting. The shops were closed and the ones that were open were dingy. And we couldn't find anywhere to eat Basically we left and headed to Bugis instead, I certainly wouldnt recommend visiting here

Years ago it was full of vibrancy, colour, energy and a shopping Mecca. Sadly it's no longer getting out if bed for, some stalls have moved on, the buildings are in desperate need of maintainer, there us less goods to pick from and most are now poor quality at higher prices. Worst thing is local traders and hoteliers really do... More

Easily accessible via the SMRT we wandered into Little India. It laked the vibrancy of Little India in Kuala Lumpur. Few flowets displayed and a lot of poor quality souvenirs. The restaurants appear to be fairly well patronised but we didn't stop to find out as we were disappointed in the over all feel.

Little India is very nice place for walking, sightseeing and shopping for bargains. I like to taste different street food there. It is tasty and safe. Of course once you are there visit Hindu temples like Sri Mariamman Temple. I prefer to visit Little India during the day as it is very crowded in the evening.

Spent a couple of hours exploring Little India. There is nothing special about the area however there is a great hawkers market with cheap India food where we had lunch. Most people in other reviews have commented that this is probably the dirtiest part of Singapore and I would agree however it was still pretty clean. The shopping centre wasn't... More

Having been to India this area was disappointing. Hard to find good shopping, although we did find a great Indian restaurant for lunch. Probably the dirtier more disappointing part of Singapore.
