Little India has an MRT stop of the same name, so you won’t have trouble finding it, and we recommend using public transport to get here, as it can be quite difficult to find a taxi in the neighbourhood, especially in the evenings and during the weekend. You can sense a difference in this part of town, a pride in the culture from their homeland, with street ... More>signs in Indian, colourful buildings and plenty of spots to enjoy delicious curries. Our favourite spot to grab some food is Tekka Market, just near the subway station, where you can get some of the best Indian, Malay and Chinese food in the city at bargain prices. For shopping, try Mustafa Centre on Syed Alwi Road – this is the ultimate bargain basement, but set over several floors. This mall is open 24 hours, so whether you need a suit made in a hurry or just a new charger for your mobile phone, there really isn’t a better shop in the city. Most hotels in Little India are in the two or three star range, making it a popular area for backpackers to stay in whilst exploring the city. It’s the best place to stay for those on a budget, with some more modern options cropping up for young couples and families visiting Singapore.
