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

Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts
and take in the stalls selling bright flowers,
