Little India, Singapore

After Chinatown, we went to Little India. Little India is located just across Chinatown. Although Little India is not solely an Indian neighborhood, many Indians choose to settle in this part of Singapore. We saw more Indians here compared to other parts of Singapore. True to its name, Little India is filled with Indian restaurants, mosques and other commercial establishments.

We were browsing through one of the brochures at our hotel and we found a restaurant in Little India that was supposedly a Michelin star awardee. The first thing we did after getting off the MRT was find the restaurant. It was not far from the train station and we only had to walk a few blocks before we found it. The food here was really good. Our server even gave us dessert on the house.

What I love about traveling is I get to experience different cultures and try new ways for doing things. Despite the things that are happening around us, the world is still such a beautiful place and I intend to continue exploring it.

Chinatown, Singapore

On our 3rd day in Singapore, we opted to go around the city by train. Singapore is such a small country and very easy to navigate via their MRT. Our friend from Toastmasters, Coen, was getting married that night. Since we planned to go to Malaysia straight after the wedding, we checked out of our hotel and left our luggage at Regent Hotel Singapore, a posh hotel located in Orchard Road. Thank you Coen, for being so accommodating :) After leaving our luggage, we were now free to roam around.

First stop, Chinatown. Chinatown is an ethnic enclave that is a bustling mixture of the old and new. Unlike the more modern areas of Singapore that’s filled with high-rise, modern buildings, Chinatown has traditional one-storey shops,food stalls and cafes. This is the perfect place to do pasalubong shopping. They have t-shirts, keychains, figurines and other Chinese products.
