Singapore's Little India

One of my favourite places in Singapore is Little India.  I call it "India Lite".  No cows wandering the streets, no beggars, no piles of garbage but lots of Indian restaurants, temples and the lively street culture.  A win win!!!  As I mentioned in a previous post...I would stay there again but just not at the weekend when thousands of Indian men come to seriously party.  Not quiet!!!   However I did enjoy wandering around the area and only wish I had more time. Sadly the first two nights I was there after Cambodia I had a tummy bug and could only manage a veggie sandwich the first night and soup the next night.  Tragic!  Luckily I was able to indulge in some vegetable biryani during my stay on the way to Cambodia in January.   

Here are some of the highlights...

Isn't it colourful?  I passed by this former merchant house (now a restaurant) every day on the way to Little India metro. I took this photo to show the contrast between the old and the new in Singapore. 


Shophouses are very colourful as well.

I think you will agree that Little India is a great place to wander around - oh Singapore, I really do miss you.  Next time we will spend at least a week together....
