This appears to be an authentic Indian neighborhood with grocery stores and florists dedicated to the Singapore Indian expats.The jewelry stores are legion and the Hindu Temple is a remarkable place to visit (take off your shoes). I was struck by the piousness of those worshiping in this colorful enclave/building. I also found the rituals to be very interesting, but... More

Went to Little India during my stay in Singapore. I was quite surprise how dirty the area was. But not a big deal. The Whole area is so colorful and crowded.

Loved this area of Singapore. Colorful flower shops full of beautiful garlands of sweet smelling flowers and Indian music drifts out of shops as you pass by. Should have done more research on prices comparable of sari's and jewelry. Didn't know what a good rang would be and since they were will to bargain.

I have been to India several times & surprisingly rediscovered Indian lifestyle in this place. Loved beautiful wall paintings around different lanes & aroma of authentic Indian foods here & there. One can experience Indian lifestyle here at Singapore without visiting India!!! Don't miss the chance of visiting this area & enthusiastic travellers could take 'Little India Walk Tours' from...

While visiting Singapore, Little India was one of the places that I visited many times during my stay. The shops are endless and offer a shopping experience that you will never forget.

Didn't really enjoy our visit to this area, scruffy packed with tourists and over hyped, if you only have a few days in Singapore give it a miss.

Staying in Little India

Neighbourhood 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 coloured saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colourful 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 Centre, 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 colourful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.
