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.

On the second day of my stay in Singapore, I went to see Little India. It is a very vibrant and colourful place. On one street I found amazing fruit and veggie stalls and I purchased some fresh Turkish Mangoes and red bananas. One can find many shops with Indian merchandise ranging from clothes, scarves, saris, jewelry, incense burners or tiny Budhha or Hindu deity statues. Price would be negotiable in some shops, people are friendly and most can converse in English, so communication wasn't an issue at all. You can have Indian food or drinks, I chose fresh coconut water for $2.50. Overall, it was a great joy to see such cultutal variation in Singapore's Little India.

For Indian or Bangladeshi people, you must go there if you want deshi foods. This part is different than the most part of Singapore, you you will realize when you go to the washroom there. But overall you will get an different experience.

What a wonderful neighbourhood full of culture, vibrant colours and amazing food! I was lucky, my colleague is from India and he lived in Singapore so I had a real sneak peak and expert advice.
Best part of the day was to get a fresh coconut and sit under the colourful umbrella park and reflect. Makes me miss it now that I write about it!

Easy access via MRT. Interesting Tekka Market with many stalls and eating options. Otherwise nothing special and there are more interesting activities in Singapore.
