A bustling shopping area hidden in the heart of Singapore’s Indian district, the Little India Arcade is the place to go for authentic Indian food, music and fashion. More Mumbai or Delhi than Singapore, this cultural hub is arranged in carefully conserved shophouses which date back to the 1920s.
It sells silk saris, gold jewellery, knick knacks, silverware, handicrafts, collectibles and other goodies from the Indian subcontinent. You’ll also find bargain electronics and traditional Indian clothing and souvenirs. Make sure you sample some of the scrumptious food on offer, like curry served on a banana leaf, which is among the best Indian cuisine available anywhere in Singapore.
