Pls refer to my reply #2 in https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g29426…

For easy access to Indian food, you can consider Little India and Farrer Park. What is your accommodation budget in SGD (not other currencies) per room per night? It will be assumed to be 2 people per room unless you indicate otherwise.

'Looking for best advice to plan the trip and locations for stay where Indian food too is available nearby' - Little India/Farrer Park area.

Budget, in SGD not INR.

'Please also suggest not to miss attractions' - READ UP or use the green color banner top of the Singapore Forum page and the right hand side column of Top Questions

There is no best attractions, to each own's interest. If you don't know what to see, ask the tour agent. YOU CAN MISS EVERYTHING AND NOT EVERYTHING, your call

AirBnB and/or Vacation home rental website(s) is illegal in Singapore, do not use it. Use the accommodation booking websites.

Immigration matters, please do not RAISE it here. Browse the Singapore's ICA website for the details.

“Best advice”?

Do as much research as possible before you travel. The more you know about Singapore the better your experience will be.

Read through the links, make a plan, set a budget and ask as many questions as you like.

Look on You Tube, just enter “ Singapore” into the search box. Enter “Indian Food in Singapore “ into the search box. You’ll be flooded with films and first hand information on Singapore.

Good luck.
