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

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
