Love Singapore. Love the colours and spicy, florally smells of Little India. The Tekka Centre has smells all of its own as it also has a fish/meat market next to the hawker food court, in addition to multiple sari / salwar & kameez shops upstairs. Eye opening for it's difference in culture, definitely not as pristine as most of Singapore... More

Very interesting place if you want to know more about people and their way of living. A busy and colorful wet market, plenty of vegetables,fruit, meat, fish etc.The food court offers delicious meals at low price. A bit dirty and smelly but fun

A visit to Singapore must include this food hall, if you like Indian food. I had one of my best Indian meals, and I am an addict. Tandoori chicken, keema peas and garlic naan. No fuss or pretentiousness. Just fresh food which was truly amazing. All for S$8. A must if you don't mind scruffy tables, plastic cutlery but fantastic... More

A trip to. Little India would not be complete without a walk through Tekka Market Centre. Fruit and vegetables, seafood of all varieties, mutton, goat, chicken, beef all are available and being sold as quickly as prepared - be prepared for the market smells though. Travel upstairs to enjoy the festive colours of the tailors and trade stalls - no... More

Great hawker centre downstairs (wet market too if you are looking for that sort of foodstuff) however the shopping upstairs is 99% Indian clothing so is not great if you are looking for "western" style clothing. For me, not a great tourist destination (except if you are just looking for a nice hawker centre meal) unless you are specifically looking... More

This unassuming multiplex is a wet market, hawker food centre, and a clothing and shopping bazaar all in one. It is home to Singapore's largest wet market (284 stalls), and 2nd largest food centre (119 stalls). To experience instant India and more, shop for Indian style apparel on the upper floor, and then take your pick of cheap and cheerful... More

This might have been my favorite part of Singapore since I'm not much of a mall and expensive drinks kind of person. For me it was a cultural people-watching experience. I started from the upper floor where you can look down at the wet market for an overview. The place was colorful and busy, and perfect for being a fly... More

Visiting the "wet" market for the first time is an experience in itself, but we were on a mission to replenish beef and chicken stocks. As an experienced trader Robin has his favorite suppliers and it didn't take long select his preferred cuts of fresh beef and chicken, not to mention king prawns, veges and spices. This market has an... More
