Little India & Sim Lim Square Shopping

Where to Shop and What to Buy in Little India & Sim Lim Square

One of the most colourful and vibrant ethnic enclaves in Singapore, Little India is a hive of activity from dawn to midnight everyday. The focal point of the Indian community, Little India has become a gazetted conservation area with its own MRT stop and another one called Farrer Park. The main thoroughfare, Serangoon Road is easily connected by side lanes, which makes shopping and walking around a breeze.

Your senses will be pleasantly assaulted by the heady mix of colours, sounds and captivating scents of shops teeming with spices, rich sari fabrics, flower garlands, jewellery, brassware, silverware, traditional snacks and more. Here you might even spot a parakeet fortune telling service along the shop fronts.

The best time to visit Little India is the month leading to Deepavali (also known as Diwali) or the Festival of Lights usually held in October. The hub is transformed into an incredible display of lights and Indian decorations with bazaars. Even if you do not buy anything, the festive atmosphere is infectious enough for you to just capture it on camera.

Another spectacular festival is Thaipusam, a religious celebration that takes place at the Hindu temples there in January or February. Witness devotees pierced with kavadis, heavily ornamented wooden or metal arches, walking in a long processional route from the Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple on Serangoon Road to Sri Thendayuthapani Temple at Tank Road.
