You literally feel like you're in India as soon as you step into Serangoon. It feels like home in every way. The lights, people, decorations, shops, warm smiles and food. It is a popular spot for tourists too. Loved it and it's really nice to spend an evening, walk on the streets and step into a few souvenir stores. The... More

I think 'Little India' gets lumped in with its adjacent 'Chinatown' as a standard stop for tourists visiting Singapore. My partner and I followed this formula recently. On the positive side we enjoyed a lunch in one of the restaurants. `On the negative side I found the suburb to really just be a continuous line of gold jewellery stores, without... More

Wandering down Sarangoon Road is a thrill any time of day. The footpaths are generally packed as shoppers peruse the many small shops spilling onto the street. Stores selling a variety of consumer goods: clothes, bags, footwear and electronics line this thoroughfare interspersed with eateries that fill the air with enticing aromas. If you enjoy watching people, this is an... More

In a city which seems devoid of any soul, little India was a joy. If you're tired of wandering around a generic western, expensive city and are looking for some kind of excitement, then make the effort to stop by. I lived in India for a while and nothing beats the buzz of spending time within an Indian community. Finally,... More

The sights, sounds,colours, and smells. If you shut your eyes you could imagine being in a city on the sub continent. A bit scruffy overall but worth a walk through without staying unless you are desperate to seek out Indian food.

Was so looking forward to going here even left our tour to go it on our own. Full of cheap crappy markets, full on madness, dirty, (pretty much like India) just disappointed with such a must visit thing to do in Singapore.

Little India is definitely a must when visiting Singapore and I come here every time I'm in Singapore to eat some cheap good quality Indian Food & desserts. There are also many shops around selling gold, clothes, foods etc.

We used the SMRT to travel to Little India and came out on the edge of it. Walking into the centre and Mustafa (the HUGE shopping center) provided us an opportunity to see some smaller shops and temples. The sights, sounds, and smells change at each turn and are all wonderful. The colors of the silk and flash of gold... 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.
