Worth seeing. Singapore has an amazing mix of cultures thats is now hidden by globalisation and sanitisation. Make sure you dig in to the history and makeup of Singapore and dont just go to Sentosa.

I had heard about this place a couple of years earlier. It was built and materials sourced for a few million dollars. Not quite sure what its purpose is. Situated right in the heart of the Indian enclave - doubt there is a need to...More

I loved the Indian Heritage Centre. We came upon it by accident but actually it’s a great starting point for visiting Little India. It has a great little museum with changing and permanent displays which gives you a lot of information about the area and...More

This relatively new addition to Little India gives visitors a detailed insight into the lives of Indian Singaporeans over the years, as well the enduring importance of SE Asia's continuing relationship with the subcontinent. Some of the artefacts, especially the exquisitely carved Chettinad doorway, are...More

With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of

brightly coloured saris patronize retailers from
decades past. Peruse streets lined with colourful
shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge.
Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts
