Definite must visit for those in Singapore! I went twice once in the daytime and another in time in the evening with colleagues. Always bustling and lively. Beautiful temples which you can enter for a small donation. Colorful shops and eateries, great place to pick up some souvenirs

Typical Indian heritage pervades the neighbourhood, centred on Serangoon Road. Their are loads of shops selling Indian food, materials, gold and jewellery and many indian cafes and... More

We had opinions from many but when we searched on our own, we were really satisfied to find a authentic Indian restaurant and really enjoyed the food there.

On our 2 week trip through part of South East Asia, our last stop was Singapore. This place was a great relief as we had been surviving on just ok food or packaged ones from india itself. This place offered a fantastic range of vegetarian food that we could enjoy without compromising on the quality or taste.

Little India MRT exit, take direction of B2 exit, then turn left. You will immediately be presented with the scent of spices and flowers. This location is a lot of gold shops, and in our opinion there is nothing interesting in little india. Then we just took a few photos only.

Catch Deepavali celebrations in November when the main road is decorated in lights. Great shopping for jewelry as there are numerous gold shops along the row. Sidewalk can be tricky if you have a stroller.

Went here in the evening to get some ethnic Indian food and to have a walk around. Did not disappoint and had a lovely evening. Had food in a vegetarian restaurant (we are not veggies but hay ho) and the food was great. Nice walk and dinner venue

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.
