The cries from the abattoirs filled the air while the 'bhai susu' outside rang their bells ‘Milk, fresh milk!’ Buffalo carts bearing goods and people of every shape, size and persuasion went rickety by. It was once said that there are three ways to India from Singapore: by ship, by plane, and by a short walk to Little India. We still believe that it is for true. Look here a spice, there a garland, and hail, a sagely old bird who tells your fortune! One always finds it so difficult to resist the charms of Little India and it’s little wonder that this is one of our guides’ favourite Walks.
Be guided by the experts of Singapore's rich heritage and colourful history. Highlights on this walk include revisiting traditional trades and customs, the Little India Arcade and the Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple.
- Learn how flowers play an integral part in Indian life and what goes into the ubiquitous “chewing gum of the east”.
- Tekka Wet Market. Discover exotic vegetables and fruits at Singapore's most colourful wet market, with a little help from our guide.
