Join us for this Singapore HeritageFest edition of the Little India Heritage Trail and learn about the history and culture of this vibrant precinct. In line with the theme of SHF, participants will also get to know about the sporting history of the Racecourse and the Farrer Park area. The distinctive Little India precinct melds the old with the new, hosting trades from the past beside modern businesses, old

conserved shophouses next to high rise buildings. In this precinct, you can find flower garland vendors next to restaurants serving both traditional and fusion meals, small traditional businesses along multi-storey departmental stores. These are just some ways the precinct retains aspects of its history within today’s modern context.
