SHOPPING > LITTLE INDIA
[an error occurred while processing this directive]

GETTING HERE:
Disembark at NE7 Little India MRT station. On CityBuzz, the bus stops at this shopping district on route C3-#5 (Tekka) and C3-#6 (Little India).

DESCRIPTION:
If you disembark at CityBuzz route C3-#5 (Tekka), you can start exploring Little India from the start of Serangoon Road. Depending on your cultural background, Little India can be exotic or just plainly all-too-familiar for you. The streets are generally clean but not on par with more fashionable districts in Singapore such as Bugis Street or Orchard Road. There are plenty of quaint old-fashioned street shops selling exotic spices, sarees (a type of Indian lady costume), jewelry or just plain cheap regular clothing stores (which you can gauge by reading signs like "Bargain King", "Punjabi Bazaar" or "Departmental Store" in front of the outlets).

With the spirit of similar urban rejuvenation area like Chinatown, the brick buildings in Little India are brightly painted with colourful hues. The traffic is rather heavy by any Singaporean standard mostly due to parked vehicles on the roadside and shoppers trying to cross the street.

MY VERDICT:
As mentioned earlier, could be the most exotic place you have been in Singapore. Or chances are you have seen it somewhere else in Asia.
