India has had more than 2 millenia of historic ties with SE Asia. In Malaya (including Singapore of today), there's still visible and living remnants of that past. Little India (and Chinatown) are amongst the few districts decided to be noteworthy of conservation against the ever-growing pressure of development on precious land! It feels like India, but very singaporean ofcourse.... More

Filthy. When Singapore is so clean we were very surprised to find this area so dirty. It is full of little shops selling old electronics and computers. I wouldn't bother coming here again.

Experience the Singapore of old.Amazing sights and smells If you love Indian food try the hawker stalls or local restaurants. You only find Indian food better if you were in India.

Prices are quite cheap than the other area. But I do not feel like I was in Singapore when I visit here.

I loved the shopping - excellent fabrics and clothes made on the spot. The flower market perfumed like heaven and the spices and sweets are addictive.

Little India is exactly how I imagined the real India to be, being much safer and no doubt cleaner than the real place. However compared to the rest of Singapore it was quite grotty and slummy but a great cultural experience for my family. It was a scorching hot winters day when we visited but cold drinks were really cheap... More
