Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Singapore's Little India Walking Tour

Singapore's Little India

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).

Your last sight is 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.

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 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.

Excellent tour. We went to places you'd never go to, which was one of the reasons we take tours. Great value.
