Little India Tours

star-3.5
109 Reviews
For subcontinental color, cuisine, and atmosphere, head to Singapore’s Little India, one of the island’s most vibrant districts. Shops, restaurants, street vendors, and colorful Hindu temples line the streets of Little India, making it an excellent place to take a walk. The culture and community center of Little India, Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple is the neighborhood’s most important Hindu Temple, dedicated to the goddess Kali. 

The Basics
Walking tours of Little India take you past fragrant flower shops and through markets teeming with colorful fashions, foods, and traditional crafts. No tour would be complete without sampling some of the area’s best bites, as aromas of spicy curries and dosas waft from the neighborhood’s many street vendors. Many cultural and sightseeing tours of the city stop in Little India, as do the blue and red lines of the Singapore Flyer hop-on hop-off bus.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Little India is a must-visit for shoppers and foodies.
  • Dive deep into the local culture on a walking tour, or catch the highlights on a citywide sightseeing tour.
  • Bring cash with you, as many of the smaller shops and food stalls do not accept credit cards.

How to Get There
Getting to Little India by public transportation is a breeze; the easiest way is to take the MRT to Little India, Farrer Park, or Rochor stations. Over a dozen bus lines also service the neighborhood.

When to Get There
Shops in Little India tend to open mid-morning and often stay open late. Plan to visit at mealtime to take advantage of the great food, and if you want to see the district at its most colorful, plan your trip during a cultural festival like Diwali (Deepavali).

Best Bets in Little India
If you’re planning to do some shopping in Little India, don’t miss the Little India Arcade. This collection of wall-to-wall shops along Campbell Lane sells everything from framed prints of Hindu gods and goddesses to hand-embroidered saris. Open 24 hours, Mustafa Centre is an indoor market packed with all sorts of products. If you’re having trouble deciding what you want to eat, head to the Tekka Centre, Singapore’s best hawker center for Indian fare.
