Road is average, but the shophouses are quite amazing. Loved the tile work. We actually stayed at a place in the shophouses called The Shophouse Enclave (through AirBnb) and it was AMAZING, so have a particular love of the place.

Petain road is having some interesting architecture typical of Singapore 1930s with remarkable “chinoiseries”. Too bad the road kept the name of now infamous French general Petain who collaborated with the Nazis and Japanese Forces during WWII.

Its just a street connecting two other streets. The building in the photo is there, sure, but it isn't particularly eye catching. Why is this a "thing to see"?

If touring blocks of Little India, by all means add this street to your loop. The lines and colors of the homes are stunning. All is familiar yet different

Passed through here again recently. It really hasn't changed much in the year since I last visited. Nothing much of interest and it's really just a way of walking between Serangoon Rd and Jalan Besar.

Nothing special about this place. Better to avoid. Nothing touristy, nthing like Singapore. Better go to India if you want to see an indian locality.

This looks like just an ordinary street with not much to see at all in the section closest to Serangoon Road. There's a large construction site on one side of the street which also isn't so attractive. Further up the street (towards Jalan Besar) there...More

Petain road, there are prostitution nearby (middle age ladies to elderly). Behind an alley of shop houses. A stone's throw from City Sq Mall. Legal ones. Good luck finding them. ;)
