Little India
Indian is one of Singapore’s larger ethnic groups and over time it would only seem logical for a “Little India” to develop. Little India is home to a large percentage of the Indian population in Singapore. It also boosts as one of the key tourist attractions.


Little India
It is a pretty busy place with lots of shops and restaurants. Best of all is the ease of access using the subway.
Kerbau Road
The feeling I get when walking around is pretty touristy(if that is a word) with all the decorations but I can’t be help feel a bit like I am in the actual place.
Indian Restaurant
The streets are packed with restaurants of which I would call pretty authentic.
Indian Clothing
Quite a few traditional clothing stores around.
Indian Shoes
With awesome pointy shoes to match!
Indian Flowers
Flower necklaces? I’m not entirely sure but that’s what it looks like. Anybody know what they are for? So cultural thing?
Bananas
Bananas, fresh for your choosing.
Brown Bananas
Brown bananas.
Indian Curry
I am a curry lover and this Indian curry really hits the spot.
Tandoori Chicken
Tandoori chicken, chickens on a skewer bathed in tandoori masala (an Indian spice mixture consisting of garlic, ginger, cumin, and such. I didn’t get to try it but heard that they can tend to get pretty spicy.
”Butcher” My favorite part is walking through the markets. There is so much action it’s unbelievable. People would be talking, laughing, and living life. Even as a bystander, I can’t help but feel as though I am one with the environment and everything that is going on around me.

    Looks like India except less crowded. The last time I was in India there were parts where I wouldn’t even be able to walk across without a lot of hassle.

    I love the culture captured in these images, I’ve been to India and you’ve bought back some memories for me.

    the ‘flower necklaces’ are for prayers- normally to put around the neck of the god statue/photo!
