Places to Visit in Singapore - II

Orchard Road
Singapore's central, vibrant shopping area. During my stay, the Great Singapore Shopping Sale was in full swing and the streets and shops were absolutely packed with people! Great for shoppers!

Little India
Little India is the focal point of Singapore's Indian community and is packed with small Indian shops selling everything from jewellery to saris and biryani. There are also some famous temples which are worth seeing (Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple, pictured below).

Mustafa Centre
This 24-hour six-storey shopping centre stocks everything from Indian chutney and diamonds to plasma TVs and cars, all at very reasonable prices. This is where I did most of my shopping. Don't forget to have your bags checked before you enter!

Sultan Mosque at Arab Street
With its massive golden dome and huge prayer hall, the Sultan Mosque is one of Singapore's most imposing religious buildings, and the focal point of Muslims in Singapore. You can also try Muslim food and buy Arab goods along this street.

There are lots of stalls selling Chinese bits and bobs. This is where I bought my hand drum (which you see used in Karate Kid II). Also check out Chinatown Heritage Centre and some Chinese Temples. Pictured below are Thian Hock Keng Temple and Trengganu Street.

Funan Digitalife Mall
Funan Digitalife Mall, Asia's leading IT shopping mall, is the one-stop haven that offers the latest, most innovative, and widest range of genuine and value-for-money IT and electronic gadgets. You can also try some really good Black Pepper Beef in the food court.

Sim Lim Square
Another place where you can pick up dirt cheap electronic gadgets. This is where I bought my iPod!
