It's still bursting with activities when you visit Little India after dinner. So hop on down at night if you want a different and of course cooler (due to the hot weather!) view of this place.
You can walk down the main road of Serangoon...watch how the neon lights illuminate Little India (more so from the glitter of the gold shops), browse through Mustafa Centre, have a cup of Teh Tarik or some Indian sweets from the confectionary as you people-watch.
If you are visiting during Deepavali, expect to elbow your way through the crowd.

Ok, this seldom happens but once in a while it still does...unfortunately my friend had the bad luck of turning into a victim.
I would advise you not to wear branded shoes/sport sandals to visit Mosques or temples, as you will be required to take off your shoes as a form of respect.
My friend lost his $300 Nike shoes outside a Hindu Temple. He was very very upset, and til now it's a taboo subject to mention in front of him. Well, the temple was very kind to give him a pair of saddles.
So just be careful...If this could be so traumatising for a guy, can you imagine a lady losing her latest pink reebok shoes or Jimmy Choo's sandals? =P

Luggage and bags: Take a day bag or backpack to carry all the things that you will want to buy.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: No matter what season you go, it will be hot on the streets of Little India. You will see people dressed all sorts of ways but most of the local women have on saris and the men short sleeved shirts and long trousers. I find that it is much better if you dress accordingly. Lightweight cotton clothing is best and some comfortable walking shoes.
