However modern and forward-thinking Indians in Singapore are today, they still retain the customs and traditions of their forefathers. Religion, family ties and food continue to be an integral part of their lives. Vibrant festivals and exuberant multi-generation family affairs with much-anticipated feasting are a fitting testimony to this.

A colourful, thriving hub of activity, Singapore Little India will truly fascinate all your senses. From the riot of colours in jeweled-hued saris and brilliant flower garlands, to the tantalizing aroma of its delectable cuisine, to the pulsating beat of a Hindi pop-song, to the thrill of having an intricate henna ‘tattoo’ or even your fortune told by a bird.

Here, shops abound with brassware, fabrics, bangles and traditional snacks or sweets. Jewellery stores are sometimes found beside pawnshops. And side streets may reveal a fully-restored building adjoining one that’s crumbling and deserted.

And while the Indians have proudly put their own unmistakable stamp on the area, it has not remained untouched by other Asian influences. You will be pleasantly surprised find a Chinese-style market and hawker centre here, with churches and mosques located nearby.
