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,...

Little India is an Aladins cave. There are endless small shops selling a myriad colourful items of clothing, costume jewellry and of course beautiful gold jewellry studded with many other precious jewels. 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

We spent a bit of time combing the streets and checking maps to make we were actually in Little India. It isnt as defined or structured as Chinatown and there didnt seem to be market stall eating like there is with the Asian cuisine. There are plenty of restaurants, but we were looking for more choice and vibrancy at market... More

We visited a day or two after deepavali celebrations and the decorations were still up, but the area seemed deserted. It meant that we could take some nice photographs, but there was no atmosphere and we only spent 30 minutes walking around before moving on in our sightseeing.

Little India stands true to its name.. it is exactly "little india". You can find all sorts of Indian food around, streets are crowded and noisy and you will not miss not being in India :) We stayed at the Parkroyal hotel on the kitchener road; which is a km away from the Little India MRT. The area is very... More

Came here with my mum after a few taxi places recommend it. We wanted to get some Henna done. The men to women ratio is about 80/20. So many disgusting men staring at me like I was a piece of meat, felt very un easy walking around with the pathetic men gawking at me It's just like a little piece... More

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.
