Owner description: An experience for all five senses. Start at the Tekka Centre, a traditional wet market and food court where fresh meat, seafood, vegetables, fruits and dry goods are sold. Cruise down Serangoon Road to find more groceries, restaurants, teahouses, tailors and Mustafa Centre, a massive department store selling anything and everything. Visit during Deepavali, the Hindu festival of light, held in October or November.

Little India is one of the best place in singapore to purchase electronic items from niranjan shop near mustafa & shankar electronics at veerasamy road.

Tekka the local namesake for little india. The area usually crowded with many Indian and international visitors. The ever popular under one roof 24 hrs shopping center " Mustafa" is one of a place to look for best prices branded goods.- Watches, Electronic and Leather products.

There are also numerous alleys with rows of shop houses and resturants, to fullfill visitors shopping needs and curries tasting favours.

Places of worship : Temples, Mosque and Church can be found within Tekka .

Best transport mode to Tekka from Changi Airport / Orchard road: SMRT, TIPS buses or train services.

What a fantastic culture shock. you come from impecable Singapore to the hustle & bustle of Little India. Its full of noise, sights & the wonderful aroma of curries. Try eating in one of the little cafes, you might frown on them at home however here their food is simply brilliant. Great bargains to be had in Mustafas too.

Just a short review but again, one of the multi cultural places to visit when in Singapore.
An organized bus trip will take you there and one you arrive, you are free to wander through the local Indian market stalls.
All type of goods are on offer at reasonable prices, no rip off tourist rates here!
As with China town - you are not hassled but the stall holders and they will let you browse in comfort.
Food is available if you want to try authentic Indian fair.

It's atmospheric and worthwhile wandering for that. Dissapointed with food in the area though .... we've yet to find somewhere really good to eat Indian food.
