I am fascinated with this place. This is definitely the place where you get to stimulate your 5 senses. It's colourful, vibrant and constantly packed with people. From souvenirs to tailors, from jewellery shops to fruit stalls, you can virtually get everything here. I certainly...More

Was advised by a couple of taxi drivers to visit during the week rather than a weekend as it is very crowded then. I am glad we took their advice although it was still very busy. The most interesting aspect was the architecture and painting...More

This small alley has the usual gifts and souvenirs, but a lot of the same things for sake, booth after booth, and not sure if a lot of the items are genuine, from India. Most looked like made in China to me. I did find...More

In this market, you can get Henna on your hand, and look around exotic items for your souvenir. Not all the Henna artists seem to be specialists, so check out their other works on other customers. There are a few shops with cooling fans.

Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of
Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander
past traditional barbershops while local residents in
brightly coloured saris patronize retailers from

shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge.
Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts
and take in the stalls selling bright flowers,
