This was my first time visiting Little India and I made an effort to see it both by day and by night. The hustle and bustle of people may not be to everyones liking, but the food, the stalls and the sights make this an interesting spot to visit if you have a few hours to spare in Singapore.

The MRT (train) goes right to the doorstep of Little India at a market place. There's a food market - great lunch stop if your timing is right, and upstairs to some amazing clothes shops and much more. But don't stop there. Its worth exploring the little streets at back of the market. Its unlike the rest of Singapore altogether,... More

I walked from my hotel to this attraction. Visited two Hindu temples, ate some fried Indian foods, browsed inside some local shops and art stores, took pictures, etc. After my visit was over, I took the train at the Little India MRT Station to visit other attractions of Singapore.

We thought we were back in India. What a great little area. Clean and vibrant but so so Indian. Did some local shopping and had a great look around but the best thing was the truly traditional local Indian food. North and South cuisine, it was great value and such a traditional taste.

9% Singapore population is that of Indian origin. And little India happens to be the place where that culture actually can be experienced . Little India will remind of a typical South Indian City, but at a much cleaner level. Your visit to Singapore has to have little india as a part of the itinerary. Immerse yourself in the sounds,...

The choice is endless and ladies with flowing saris select their jewellry st their leisure. Shops making saris abound with the most beautiful fabrics and the finished garments... More

The sights, smells and sounds all reflect its name perfectly. I have never seen so many gold shops, just one after another and all displaying such beautiful pieces. There are smells of spices, incense, flowers and food. Bells ringing, sewing machines on the edge of the footpath and locals speaking their own language. Some great shopping opportunities with some real... 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.
