Singapore overall is a city of malls. There are incredibly large number of malls over all Singapore. Underground metro stations have malls attached. There are underground metro stations that are interconnected on two ends by a mall. So shopping (or Window shopping) is part of Singapore experience.

Singapore is a modern city but there are pockets where old world charm survives. Little India near Ferrer Park, Arab Street near Bugis, China town and Changi village area areas where culture and traditions and old city character still thrives and offers an experience.

Little India is one of the most colorful districts spreading along the road of Serangoon Rd. populated by the descendants who came to Singapore in the 19th century. The area is full of Indian restaurants and feels like a Chennai (India) old city. Mustafa shopping center is a 24 X 7 shopping center and literally one where one can shop till one drops.

Arab Street is situated just ten minutes from the southeast of Little India. The shops reflect the Muslim influence. One can be contented shopping here, as they will get everything from all over the Asia at a bargain rate. Here one gets authentic Arabic cuisine.

China town is situated to the south around the Singapore River now known as Telok Ayer. This place provides with all the places of interest. It reflects both the racial and religious harmony. This is where old china still thrives.

Changi Village shows a different perspective of the Singapore, where the people enjoy the cool breeze beside the beach on the clean sand.
