Little India in Singapore is really tiny and it's a quiet place, nice for a stroll. It's also good for shopping, if you're interested in that. We were there in the late afternoon, there weren't many people in the streets and we felt fine and safe. It's probably a good spot to try some authentic Indian food, unfortunatelly, we weren't...

Little India bustles with shopping and eateries. It is crowded and noisey, but that is what its all about. Great culture experience.

We got a taxi to drop us off here, and wandered round, soaking up the atmosphere. There are lots of fascinating streets, shops and markets, and wonderful aromas. We ate at a lovely local restaurant where we were the only visitors. The staff were terrific. Overall, it's well worth a visit if you have the time.

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.
