Little India - Home Away From Home
In Singapore's Little India, traditional businesses like goldsmiths, Indian restaurants and coffee shops, saree shops, and stalls selling garlands and sweets continue to thrive alongside newer establishments like boutiques and souvenir shops. There is round-the-clock activity from the clusters of night-time hangouts, backpacker hostels and late-night eateries in the area.
But Little India is more than just a vibrant tourist location. It also represents a home away from home for migrant workers. Places create a sense of community and home, and no one understands this more than the team that run a soup kitchen which packs free meals for over 1,000 migrant workers daily.
