Little India, Singapore

Jessica Peterson

Little India is a sensory assault, from the heady aroma of floral garlands hanging from sidewalk stalls to the smell of rich, delicious curry that seems to permeate every nook and cranny. Brightly colored dresses adorn doorways of shops offering everything from sparkly bracelets to stacks of electronics. Read my travel story.

I’m an admitted clotheshorse and Little India was nothing short of a divine indulgence. I bought a blouse with armholes the size of my wrist and took it to this tailor two shops down. He briskly measured me, deconstructed the blouse, and within minutes I walked away with a perfectly tailored garment.

We stayed at Moon Hotel, a mid-century modern boutique hotel with the tiniest rooms you can imagine. However, it was very clean, included complimentary breakfast, wi-fi, and cocktails daily.
