Also happening around the city is The Great Singapore Sale which brings about the best offers and promotions from some of Singapore’s best attractions. For those who are looking for a simple staycation with their family, this is the perfect time to visit a place that offers a perfect home-away-from-home experience.

Little India
Little India today is one of Singapore’s most vibrant districts. As you walk down Serangoon Road and neighbouring streets, explore their mix of Hindu and Chinese temples, mosques and churches. Come sunset, fill your tummy with South Indian vegetarian food, North Indian tandoori dishes and local fare like roti prata (round pancakes) and teh tarik (pulled tea in Malay). Try to spot the brewers ‘pull’ the hot milk tea – it is amazing showmanship. While there don’t forget to shop. The 24-hour shopping mall Mustafa Centre offers everything from electronics to groceries, or take your pick from open-air Tekka Centre, goldsmith shops and sari stores.


Arab Street
While Little India is memorable for its fragrances, it’s the vibrant colours of the shops of the that stick in the memory. Textile stores and outlets selling Persian carpets are the most prominent, but you’ll also see leather, perfumes, jewellery and baskets for sale.
