We went at night which i recommend., as it is both cooler and prettier. Very busy with markets selling souvenirs and nick nacks. Food stalls are great. We had a delicious meal for around $12 each.

For a look at old Singapore, food and bad, head to Chinatown. Plan to eat in the food center there. It’s old school! Great dumplings, chicken rice, and other classic dishes. The lines don’t lie. The market stalls in the neighborhood were also fun to...More

I dont rate this chinatown as good as say, kuala lumpur, however if you havent visited a china town before this is a good place to start. Lots of shops more than restaurants and 2 different temples that you can visit.

Very small Chinatown, you’re not missing anything really if you don’t go here but it’s a good place for souvenirs, and it’s close to the Ann Siang Hill area which is a little unique.

Was looking forward to visiting China town and was not disappointed. Although it was an extremely hot morning, we managed to wander for several hours. Got some really cheap souvenirs including the lucky waving cats. Prices do vary cheaper in the middle of the street...More

This place was really quiet during the day but at night it really comes alive. Street vendors selling their wares and food galore. This was one of the cheapest places we ate and it was amazing.

Somewhat similar to many other Chinatown’s I have visited but more enjoyable because the pestering by shop keepers was at a much lower rate than others. We enjoyed half a day wandering around having a massage at good price, enjoying a cold beer at a...More

Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.
