Awesome hotel with excellent service. We arrived in Singapore early in the day and had a late evening flight back. They stored our bags and allowed us to use the showers and pool before and after our stay. Amazing bonus! The bed is firm but everything else about the hotel exceeded our ...
Not very cheap but better than other hotels at this price in this area
Location is very strategic - near to Rochor MRT and Little India Bus stand. Could improve to remove ants in the room otherwise stay was pleasant.
near mrt station
I paid EXTRA for a nice upscaled room with a view, I was put in the dungeon, with no windows at all...outside of my room is the breakfast and otherwise eating area, they provide a nice fridge for common use... but since eating in the rooms is not allowed, there was noise till very late at night and ...
It was a great stay at Bunc hostel, the room was clean tidy and the staffs were really nice too. with this price this is the best you can get in Singapore!
Handy location, clean and relatively comfortable although no window in the room wasn't great
Great Suite. Good location. But more needs to be done regarding the bedroom. Saw others commented ants on bed and it's true. There were ants! Probably require curtain on the door too. Too bright during the day!
As its name suggests, Little India is the thriving centre of Singapore’s large Indian community. This little pocket of India is one of the city-state’s best tourist attractions, although it doesn’t specifically cater for tourism. During the daytime, this district is bustling with spice and gold traders, while at night, the streets light up to show off the many Indian restaurants. Each year, several festivals attract thousands of visitors too.Don’t Miss
Little India is a popular place to visit, and while here visitors can enjoy several different activities.
The unique Indian culture found in this part of Singapore is its biggest attraction. Visitors are recommended to simply stroll around the district, and take in the sounds and sights of the main streets and side alleys. Everything from Hindu street signs to Indian-inspired architecture and blaring Bollywood soundtracks greets tourists.
One of the oldest and most important religious sites in Singapore, Little India’s Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple is a must visit. The structure dates back to 1881, although renovations and additions were made to the temple as late as 1986. Make sure to bring a camera, as the site is home to plenty of ornate decorations and colour.
Each year, there are several exciting celebrations that are centred within Little India. Arguably the most prolific festival in the district is the Hindu Festival of Light, or Deepavali. The streets are illuminated and markets sell festival-related goodies, attracting many thousands of people. Thaipusam is another event, held each January or February. Be wary, as the rituals can be quite extreme.Restaurants and Bars in Little India
No surprisingly, Indian food is the main cuisine found here. However, there is a range of Indian cuisine to try, with distinct north and south Indian restaurants operating. One of the stand-out dishes, which is actually unique to Singapore, is fish-head curry. Both Chinese and Indian styles of this dish are available. Then there’s the regular choices like Chapati with keema, tandoori chicken, masala thosai, roti prata and Indian vegetarian food. Restaurants like Ananda Bhavan and Banana Leaf Apollo are some of the standout choices if you’re not just wandering around and sampling delicious Indian food at hawker stalls.
For a night out, tourists should head to one of the interesting pubs along nearby Racecourse Road.Shopping
Shopping is mostly done on the streets of Little India, where stalls sell a range of Indian-related produce and merchandise. You can of course buy some traditional indian clothing like sarees, punjabi suits and bangles in the most amazing myriad of colours and styles.
Tekka Market on Buffalo Road is one of the best places to find cheap goods. City Square Mall and Tekka Mall are two of the most unique shopping complexes in Singapore and both are found in Little India. Just outside of the district is Sim Lim Square, which is Singapore’s most important electronics mecca.
