Little India, Singapore

2.7
#3 of 17 in Neighborhoods in Singapore
Experience the vibrancy of Singapore's Indian culture at Little India, where you can immerse yourself in the smells and tastes of aromatic food at the district's range of ethnic restaurants. Try masala dosa--a crispy pancake filled with fragrant potato curry--or a spicy fish dish, washed down with a mango lassi. The neighborhood also has a reputation for bargain shopping, with goods available at a fraction of the price charged by upscale retailers. If you do decide to try out your bargaining skills, watch out for fake or low-quality merchandise sold at the markets.

Where to stay in Singapore

For leading chain hotels, head to the area around Orchard Road, considered the tourist center of Singapore due to its varied selection of rooms, good travel links, and tourist-focused businesses. At the eastern end of the road, you'll find more luxurious and expensive options, with hotels located in impressive colonial-era architecture. North and south of this main artery, backpacker hostels and budget hotels provide affordable rooms with basic facilities.
