Little India, a Lot to Offer
Little India is unique in Singapore with its slightly messy, loud and rowdy personality. It always feels a few degrees hotter than the rest of the city as you dodge shoppers, worshippers and trinket sellers on Serangoon Road. The crowds and the pungent smell of flowers, rich curries, and frying prata assault and excite the senses. The sidewalks are taken up by racks of DVDs, cases filled with phone cards, carts selling garlands of fresh flowers, and men sitting at sewing machines doing repairs while you wait. It's a uniquely South Asian crush of color and hum of activity. On Sundays the streets are even more crowded than usual—that's the day most Indian and Bangladeshi construction workers have off.
