Little India, Singapore Reviews
With the north east line and downtown line running through this station and the fact that its in Little India it is one of the busy MRT stations. Very close to the Little India Tekka Centre and across the main road (towards Rochor MRT) to other hotels nearby. A well maintained station that is the entry way to Little India for folks visiting Little India.
Loud and colourful is how I would describe Little India. On my visit here, it was hot as well! But Little India is always an interesting visual experience. A buzzing enclave filled with traditional shops selling spices and jewellery (lots of gold!), sari, flowers as well as its own collection of murals that depict the lives of the ethnic Indian community that has settled here for centuries. Murals located within the Little India district tell stories of the neighborhood. This one here, the Traditional Trades of Little India is a mural woven together by local artist Psyfool. The mural, according to a little sign below it tells a tale of the trades that Indian migrants brought along to the island, among them garland making and parrot astrologers (huh, what?). I do think murals are just a great way to capture this heritage. Visitors will come here, takes loads of selfies in front of it, and in its own way, those stories are brought home, told and retold.
For 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.
This MRT station has few exits. Very clean and well maintaned. The sign is very clear. As a tourist you can easily find and read the sign.
The MRT staff along the NorthEast line generally have poor attitude and look as though they have a stick up their arse. I say from multiple experiences when interacting with staff at the station, be it asking general questions or being directed (shouted at) in the morning. It could be because of the generally bad sentiment of SMRT overflowing onto SBS trains, but that's not an excuse to provide bad service towards your customers. SBS should encourage their MRT staff to be friendly like their bus captains, it really makes my day when the BCs smile and greet me, to which I reciprocate, of course.
