Overview

Get to know Singapore’s Little India neighborhood on a walking tour with an informative guide, who provides a deeper look at this district than you would otherwise experience on your own. Enjoy the bustling atmosphere as you visit Hindu temples and check out vendors selling snacks, spices, and saris and visit Singapore's oldest Hindu temple, Sri Veeramakaliamman.
  • Comprehensive walking tour of Singapore's Little India
  • Discover India's rich variety of spices, fruits, and vegetables in the outdoor markets
  • Admire colorful saris and try tasty Indian snacks at the Little India Arcade
  • Discover the vibrant street art dotted around Little India
  • Visit Singapore's oldest Hindu temple, Sri Veeramakaliamman
Meet your guide in Little India for your walking tour of this lively district of Singapore. While you walk, listen to your guide’s historical commentary, such as how the British East India Company wanted to control the spice trade route here.

Wander along streets lined with Indian restaurants and fruit and vegetable stands, and check out Little India Arcade, a bazaar-style shopping area where vendors sell the same things you might find in Mumbai or Delhi. This is a great place to shop for souvenirs like bracelets or hand-embroidered saris, and you can try some Indian street snacks or sweets, if you like. To truly experience a piece of Indian culture, you can even have your hand temporarily tattooed in henna (own expense).

Visit the Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple, one of Singapore’s oldest Hindu temples. Known for its colorful and detailed interior, the temple is dedicated to the goddess Kali, who was the god of Shiva’s wife. When your tour ends, you are free to continue exploring on your own.

Geraldine was our guide and the experience was great. She allowed us time to look around and stop and have a drink. She was very knowledgeable and informative. A tour worth doing.

The group was small which was good. Guide was good and knowledgeable but seemed rushed, the shop keepers didnt seem to know that their stall was part of the tour. Would have liked to have an Indian guide who had personal experience

Little India was great and our guide was really informative! We loved walking through all the back streets that sometimes may too daunting to go down if you weren't with a tour group! After we finished our tour, we enjoyed having lunch at the Tekka Centre!

It was hot and humid, we were pooped, but our superstar guide Wui Wui was full of charm and energy throughout. From the Hindu temple to the markets to the strange fruits to the shops selling spices and even clothes direct from the sub continent, Wui Wui had our attention with her enthusiasm. We enjoyed every minute of it, but welcomed the chance to end the morning with lunch in an air conditioned Indian restaurant.

This was excellent. I joined a group of five women lead by our great guide, Helena, for a lovely morning wandering around Little India. There were many interesting facts and sights and a well-paced tour. I was also the 'sari demonstration' model. All good fun and a great staff. The tour ended with a sweetmeat tasting. Lovely way to spend a morning.

A great way to learn about the cultures of Singapore. However, it is very tiring and hard on your back as there is a lot of standing around whilst you listen to the very informative and knowledgeable guide. Not suitable for children.

This was a wonderful tour. Helena was so knowledgeable about Singapore's history, and history of the Indian people in Singapore and their customs and traditions, as well as the Hindu religion. We learned so much.
