Little India (Singapore). 'The most atmospheric of Singapore’s historic quarters is as close it gets to Singapore of the old chaotic days. Experience it with the masses on the weekends when it gets packed to the gills with Indian workers wanting a slice of home.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/singapore/singapore-city/sights/market/little-india
Oh how I loved living in Singapore....except when I'd drop my laundry out the window and have to run to the bottom of the building to retrieve it. Those poles are HEAVY when there are wet clothes on them.
