If you have not previously been in India is a nice place since you can feel like moving to another country. There are lots of Indian restaurants with good food at reasonable prices and beautiful temples all around. As in china town, go there if you have time and you haven't been before in India

A good place to shop for Indian ethnic wear. You will be spoilt for choices. Sarees range from 15 dollars for cotton and can even go up to hundreds of dollars for silk. Designers looking for fabrics will be able to get 6 yards of saree material for about 15-45 dollars for cotton material. There are lots of eateries along... More

So many things one can do in Indua India - from shopping at Mustafa to food, to smelling the flowers and guzzling along the India shops, it's a vibrant place to visit. Prefer the night scene

When you drop by singapore, its not completed without a cultural tour. Try out the different spices and delicious indian crusines. Add more heat to your tour despite the warm summer sunny island, feel the chills and jalapeños burn your throat as it enters, as well as it exits.

I've been back here a few times recently for dosas with the family. It's quite an interesting experience for young children to wander around and explore the area. Also some interesting vegetables available for purchase which might be harder to obtain in other parts of Singapore.

Cheap and cheerful. The hokkers markets are a great way to eat,just off the train station, but also exciting place to just walk around and see the sights

This is the most unruly place in Singapore which I avoid as much as possible. Even if I need to go shopping at Mustafa ....I try to go late to avoid the crowds but it seems Little India is never without crowds. It still a great place to go for shopping for some cheap stuff..but be prepared for the crowds.

I was just in India but still went to Little India. Great food options! It was the day before a festival so they were setting up and preparing flowers, etc. Later that night was a parade through the city. It really feels like India, minus the dirt roads and cows wandering around. As such, they had stand-up cows around to... More

Staying in Little India

Neighborhood Profile
Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander past traditional barbershops while local residents in brightly colored saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colorful shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge. Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts and take in the stalls selling bright flowers, fabrics, and spices. At the 24-hour, four-level Mustafa Shopping Center, you can shop through the night and find everything from pharmacy and grocery items to Bollywood DVDs and diamond necklaces. Singapore’s Little India offers a colorful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.
