Taking the MRT (Mass Rapid Transit), also know as the metro, from Orchard Road (the shopping hub and main street) to Little India might feel like you traveled more than a few metro stops. The high buildings in the background might give you away though. Little India gives you a little taste off India, in a cleaner way I was told as I haven’t been to India myself, yet. You see beautiful Indian clothing on women and you can buy tasty foods and drinks to eat on the street. Also the shopping is a far cry away from the upscale shops at Orchard Road. All in all one of the best experiences in Singapore.
Walking the streets in Asia is full of colors and smells. One very distinct smell is the fruit durian. It is an experience in itself. It has a high enough status to even have its own sign in public places, as it is banned at places.
