My World Tuesday - Little India in Singapore - Tekka Market

Singapore is a multi racial country where the different ethnic group live together in harmony. We also have different ethnic towns for our people. For the Chinese we have the Chinatown, the Malays they have Geylang Serai, the Indians have Little India to represent them but we actually shop at any ethnic town regardless of race.
Last weekend, I was at Little India to take some photos to put in my blog. It really looked like I am in India but not as big as India so we called it Little India. It is located in Serangoon Road.

Many tourists love visiting this place to take photos and to shop. It is very convenient to visit this place, just take the MRT and alight at Little India MRT Station.

You might like to visit Tekka Centre located just above the MRT Station. You can read from wikipedia how Tekka Centre got its name. The centre gone through several changes to its unique name.

An Indian Grocery Shop selling different types of spices and other groceries.

On the first floor of the Tekka Centre is the hawker centre and the wet market.

You can find different ethnic food in the hawker centre.

On the second floor of the Tekka Centre are more shops selling clothes, shoes, etc.

Looking down at the courtyard from the 2nd floor.

View of the wet market from the second floor. The wet market is rather big.

Please visit "That's my World" for other parts of the world.
