Cruise down Serangoon Road to find more groceries, restaurants, teahouses, tailors and Mustafa Centre, a massive department store selling anything and everything. Visit during Deepavali, the Hindu festival of light, held in October or November.

Little India is great traditional Indian area to explore to get to know Indian culture, heritage, Hindu temples, Indian food and people. It was a nice experience.

Would highly recommend. This was prob one of the highlights of my trip. It was like being transported to India. very easy to access via the SRMT. Lots to explore just by walking through the streets.

This neighbourhood is full of great places to eat- enjoyed dinner here. The area was also recently beautifully decked out for the Diwali festival.

In 2018 we visited Little India and quite enjoyed it, but in post-Covid Singapore it’s run down and a mess. You’d be forgiven for thinking you’d left Singapore when walking through Little India. There is junk everywhere, it smells bad and is frankly quite dirty. Not to mention most of the footpaths are broken down and completely useless for a wheelchair user. It turned out to be safer walking on the road.

This area has slipped a long way down since 2018 and one can only hope it’ll get the attention it needs soon.

DO NOT GO AT NIGHT !! i was only there for about 6 minutes before leaving to go to chinatown instead and it was by far the worst experience i’ve had in sg. filled with hordes of men who stare down any woman who walks by. it made me feel incredibly unsafe and uncomfortable. also note that there are no other women in the area… and now it’s clear why that is.

Nice to see, colourful and pretty but many buildings were worn down. The area itself was dirty (I saw rats - the first time I've ever seen that in Singapore).

You will know you've entered this Indian community once you are greeted by the aromas of spices and curry powder. Learn about the variety of spices and watch flower garlands of fragrant jasmine buds being hand strung.

My stay in the Citadines hotel in Little India was amazing, the city is quite busy, and neat, my little challenge had to do with the smell of tobacco at most places which made breathing sometimes unfavorable. But in the nutshell, my stay in Litte India was Great!
