You can find literally anything related to Indian culture from the religious to food and fashion. Awesome place you feel like you are in India for a while except you gonna meet an Indian speaking Malay here. Above all... More

Very good vegetarian restaurants all around Little India and very cheap. Markets are worth a look and a few interesting temples to look at.
