Streetname signs in Little India1
1 Little India is located around Serangoon Road, there are amazing colours, scents, food, flowers. Buildings, shops, temples and very lovely people. And all is carefully designed - even street signs perfectly reflect the different culture. This is a jouney in space without crossing a street. We have loved this part of Singapore!
Shopping for fabrics in Little India2
2 Once you walk around the shops with sarees, you lost it…the colours are irresistible, patterns, glossy fabric and shop assistants are very attentive, waiting to fulfill any wish you may have. Then a bit of discussion about the price, but with a smile on your face you find yourself walking away with at least one piece of butterfly coloured and beautifully embroided saree.
