If you think this Chinese house looks out of place in Little India, that's because it's the last standing Chinese house. The former house of Tan Teng Niah is a colorful display of heritage architecture. And a selfie magnet.

Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of
Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander
past traditional barbershops while local residents in

and take in the stalls selling bright flowers,
