This is a road with shops on selling cheap tat, that's it, very little to see or do other than walk up and down it. Not got the character of China town. It was dirty, not closed off to traffic and crowded on Sunday with young Indian men hanging about in groups - if you have teen daughters I'd recommend... More

Interesting to be here during deepawali, / Diwali which is a Hindu festival of lights. Extremely colourful. But watch your step, as there is a lot of uneven pavement. Interesting architecture. plenty of market stalls to bargain at

Smelly, dirty and littered with garbage. After having been in India just a few months ago, I was really disappointed with what had purported to be an interesting area of Singapore. I can't recommend a trip to this area of the great city of Singapore. If you have only a few days explore the many beautiful areas of the city.

When I get the opportunity to visit Little India in Singapore, I enjoy visiting the place primarily because I like all things 'Indian'. Little India is home to the Indian community in Singapore. One can find authentic Indian cuisines with different price range. Beverages like lassie (Indian yoghurt drink), Indian ginger tea (teh halia) and Indian spiced tea (teh masala)... More

Probably I have been to India, so I didn't really wanna go to little India again. Honestly, nothing special here. Only recommend people who never been to India but feel curious about or interested in Indian life style. Otherwise, you can just skip here. I even don't wanna try food here. Not very clean area, as a woman, not felt... More

when i visited this place , i felt as if i were in Tamilnadu. There are many indian stores, restaurants. Lot of hindu temples are located here. You will enjoy the place by doing some purchases or just walking on the streets.
