Dhobis, Saris and a Spot of Curry™
A Little India Walk



"With only 24hrs available to see the sights, your walking tour of Little India helped me maximise my time and gain valuable insight into this vibrant community."
- Laura Cohen

"The knowledge and information provided during the tour were absolutely magnificent. We can't wait to return to Singapore to partake in further tours.It was also a great opportunity to meet a lot of other people from all different walks of life and from different countries.
- Gary and Marg Bucknall, Australia

Tour Synopsis
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. At Journeys, we still believe that's true. Look here a spice and there a garland! 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.
