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.
I took the long tour, and lo and...
I took the long tour, and lo and behold, I was the only person on the tour. Had my own personal tour guide, and he was wonderful. Thanks, Gene! This is a great introduction to Indian culture, including their primary religion, Hinduism. Highly recommended.

Singapore's Little India & Chinatown Walking Tour
Very knowledgable guide. We saw a lot. Definitely recommend if you want insights from a local. You see as much as you’re willing to walk.

Excellent photography tour

Chinatown and Little India Photo Walk
This was one of the highlights of our Singapore trip. We photographed our way around the streets, temples and markets of Chinatown, Little India and Telok Ayer. The day concluded with a river cruise around Marina Bay from Clarke Quay. We learnt so much from our professional photographer teacher and guide Mark that we would most certainly do it all again. His shooting and composition advice enabled us to get great photos of places (and things) we would not have found ourselves. Very highly recommended!
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.
