We loved walking around the quaint streets and exploring all that little India had to offer. We ate at some of the local spots and found the food inexpensive. No problem walking around late at night. Be sure to visit the wet market as well.

Little India is virtually a small bit of authentic India is a global metropolis like Singapore. It has several authentic Indian restaurants that offer you a variety of cuisines. Several shops sell traditional Indian wares and the Indian community in the area makes you feel that this is one part of Singapore that decided to go desi.

Little India is one place I have found interesting to visit here in Singapore. Because I like Indian food! So in Little India, I'd buy some curry powder, Indian cooking ingredients, ready to mix indian cuisine, flavoured snacks, all to bring home. During my visit this time, I had the opportunity to do a walk tour during the Singapore Art... More

You feel like you are in India but much cleaner. Authentic retaurants with typical Southern Indian food. The spice shops and Bollywood dvd shops add to the feeling. Two or Three hours including meal time will suffice.

Little India has great, and affordable food. Especially compared to the high prices in Singapore. If you love the South-Indian cuisine, you'll have plenty choice. Mustafa Centre is also located in Little India if you are looking for cheap groceries.

My missus and I entered via the Little India metro station, walked around for half an hour, through a quirky little alley and then realised it wasn't our thing and went back the same way we came. Dirty, full of flies and other insects, most stuff for sale not worthwhile. This was by far our least favourite place in Singapore.

A trip to Little India should be on your list when you visit Singapore. Be aware The Indian National Museum is closed on Mondays. There are a plethora of interesting shops, cafes and everything Indian in a easily walkable area. Hop on the MRT and get off at either Rochor or Little India Stations. Henna tattoos are a fun thing... More

Great food options, even non Indian food. Try the biryani, ensure you get the sauce on the side.! The local markets are a must walk through, as there are lots on sights & smells to take you to India. Enjoy the environment.

If you're someone into culture, it might be a place for you to have a short scene of Indian people's life. If not, or if curry's smell is something you never expect, simply find another list on your itinerary.

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.
