Little India is the next stop and as you make your way through the busy neighbourhood, there will be several stops to allow your to try crisp dosas and lightly spiced samosas

From Little India, you will move into Chinatown which has an interesting history. A Chef’s Tour aims to show you the culture of the place you are visiting as well as the food so you will learn a lot at this stop.
