Indians in Singapore

Hi tourists!

Did you know that…

When Singapore was ruled by the British, Sir Stamford Raffles divided the land up and segregated the Singaporeans by their race: the Chinese to Chinatown, the Malays to Kampong Glam, and the Indians to Chulia Street.

Chulia street soon livened up, filled with bright colours of traditional Indian costumes, mouth-watering scents of Indian spices and rhythmic beats of Indian music.

As Singapore flourished, its population started to grow very quickly. Chulia street became overpopulated, and so the Indians expanded to Serangoon Road, the main road that runs through the Little India area today.

Go check it out! I’m pretty sure there’s not a place like Singapore’s Little India anywhere else in the world.
