Easy stroll around this part of the city taking in all the sights, colors and smells. Nothing in particular to see other than a few temples and shophouses. In any event a worthwhile few hours strolling around.

Perhaps because I love Indian food I really loved it in Little India. Nice shops and friendly people and had a great meal at a very cheap price. Would visit here on any subsequent visit to Singapore.

The journey on the MRT made Little India very easy to visit. Exit the station, and your senses go into overload. There is so much to see, smell and touch. The colours of the shops and produce made it enjoyable. The fresh flowers being made into offerings was beautiful. The flowers were so fresh, they were covered in bees. The... More

Little India is a small neighborhood that manages to mix the traditional life of an Indian city (hundreds of little shops, great cheap food, plenty of colors and smells, traffic) with traditional Singapore (organized, clean, lively, unthreatening). A stroll around the little streets (Buffalo Road, Dickson Road, Campbell Lane) is a great way of experiencing a bit of Indian without... More

If you're a lover of Indian food, you'll certainly be happy here. There are also shops selling everything from electronics to clothes. The old colonial buildings are wonderful.

Imagine stepping out of a bustling metropolis into another world...that is Little India, Singapore. The food is heaven - so much to choose from, the market shops come in a variety of every type you could imagine from telco & electronics, clothing, shoes, gold, souvenirs and too many more to mention. Then in the side streets you have the old... More

Little India is well worth a visit. Not a lot to see other than inexpensive shops selling mainly Indian attire and there are plenty of florists too Also there are is a wide selection of very inexpensive and rather tasty eating establishments, or hawker stalls. We dined for SG$12 for two people The locals are very welcoming

This place is truly a Little India with small contribution from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka also. You will not miss India once you are in this area. Famous Mustafa Centre is also located in this neighborhood. The food, the people and the cleanliness around :P all give you the feel of India. There are multiple Indian eating joints here.... More

Interestin place to visit. It's like being in India with all the shops, people, restaurants and stalls in the area. The odour of spices i the air too reminds you of that. You can even do henna there. However some diffrence is that it's clean. You can even get a variety of things to buy either from the street stalls... More

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

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.
