Hidden Gems of Little India

A kaleidoscope of sights, sounds and smells, Little India is a place like no other you’ll find in Singapore. Head to Serangoon Road and you’ll come across streets lined with flower shops, Indian sweets, gold jewellery, and the very famous Mustafa Centre. 

It’s the area to go for authentic Indian food, to explore heritage sites such as temples, and to find out the history of the Indian migrants who first came to this island. 

But, that’s not all! We’ve walked the colourful inner lanes to find you the hidden gems of Little India.


Housed in a conserved 1920s heritage building along Dickson Road in Little India, Wanderlust, known by travellers and locals alike, has been completely transformed through conscientious design and distinct vision, an accommodation concept for the new generation. Wanderlust boutique hotel allows guests to slow down and settle in with its calm and inviting ambience, merging old-world charm with modern-day comforts.

Feel welcomed with an adorned façade of original Peranakan tiles and enter the lobby to a mix of contemporary textures in a palette of warm and cool tones, discovering a naturally peaceful and welcoming environment, a wonderful dichotomy to the vibrancy of the neighbourhood. Then relax in the open-air veranda overlooking charming Dickson Road, taking in the bustling streets of Little India from a private oasis.

With access to the Downtown MRT Line within a few convenient steps, guests find themselves minutes from the bustling city centre while immersed in the historic urban montage of Little India. Evolving from an under-the-radar hipster hangout, the up-and-coming Jalan Besar neighbourhood has quickly become a hot spot in Singapore to see and be seen.

A foodie haven with an impressive collection of restaurants, bakeries and cafes, the hip district also boasts some of the city’s best Third Wave coffee shops and trendy shops, perfect for a relaxed weekend afternoon within minutes of the oasis of Wanderlust.

Address: 2 Dickson Road, Singapore 209494
