Your private Little India tour will begin with your local guide giving you the lowdown on the surrounding area and its multi-faceted history.
After putting the area into context, it’s time to explore! As we make our way through this ethnic neighbourhood you’ll see a mix of traditional trade shops and designer boutiques and hip eateries.
We’ll stop at the splendid Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple to admire its stunning design and intricate external carvings. Your guide will also spend some time teaching you about the complexities and colourful customs of the Hindu religion to which it belongs.
We’ll take a stroll around streets with curious names such as Buffalo Street and learn why it earned that moniker. As we meander, we’ll take in the vivid street culture and pass bustling markets and a dizzying array of shopping options.
You’ll then see first-hand what it takes to assemble one of the intricate flower garlands that you see all over Little India, what their significance is and the varieties of flower that are used.
We at Urban Adventures firmly believe that to fully understand a culture, you need to taste its cuisine, so without further ado, we’re going to take you to our favourite restaurant to try several different Indian dishes that are sure to delight your taste buds!
Our tour ends here but before you go, don’t forget to ask your local guide for more tips on what else to see, do and eat in sensational Singapore!
