Little India – Probably Singapore's Most Colourful Ethnic Enclave

Before ""Little India"" got its current name, it was just known as Serangoon - the name of the main thoroughfare in the area. Whilst the genesis of an Indian enclave in Little India might have started with Indian penal labourers brought in by the British, it was a combination of commerce like the cattle and related businesses (street names like Buffalo Road and Kerbau Road serving as reminders) and the continued importation of Indian labour that led to more Indians settling in the area. As the Indian community grew, an ethnic enclave - Little India - became apparent and continued to grow into what it is today. Drawn by a racecourse built in the early 1840s, some European families and business owners settled in the area; hence the reason certain streets in the area bear names such as Dunlop, Cuff, Dickson, Clive and Desker. Little India was gazetted as a conservation area in 1989 and several of its architectural and religious landmarks have been designated as national monuments like the famous Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple. Apart from its renowned F&B offerings, Little India offers something for everyone be it traditional goods or simply its rich cultural and architectural heritage.

You can opt to end the tour with a traditional Southern Indian thali meal and drink. (The thali will be an Indian-style meal served on a platter with an assortment of 9 small dishes that change daily).

This tour starts at Little India MRT Station and ends at Serangoon Road.
