To be frank Chinatown is my most hated region in Singapore, don't get me wrong but I don't like crowded and noisy places. Yet, it's a treasure box for cheap souvenirs. So, this bookstore is an oasis, just like its sister bookstores, this place had...More

Found this little bookstore and thought it was charming until I stepped inside, and tried to take a photo of it so that other people could know about it - was immediately shut down by an incredibly rude staff member saying no photography allowed. There...More

Nice little bokshop along Duxton Road, stocks mass-market paperbacks and select non-fiction titles. Quite low on online presence, though.

I've lived in Singapore for about a year and a half, and one of the things I've missed dearly has been a good local bookstore. Littered With Books (LWB) is my favorite discovery in Singapore so far. Singapore is what I call a 'book desert',...More

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.
