DISTRICT 08 - LITTLE INDIA

Home to religious monuments, saree shops, popular eateries, backpacker hostels and more, Little India is situated at the fringes of downtown — making it an amazing commercial and tourist hub away from the city. Filled with rich history and designated as conservation area of cultural importance, the vibrant neighbourhood is an enclave of Singapore's Indian community, bustling with people amidst the bright lights of beloved 24-hour shopping mall Mustafa Centre.
