Adam S Hi

Both has its own colors. Chinatown has 4 hawker centres (food centres) which you will not go hungry at a very affordable cost. In terms of lights, Chinatown is better and more commercialized. There are a couple of attractions worth visiting and the area is compact.

Little India less of the bright lights but more local flavour and more vibrant in terms of daily livelihood. Only 1 hawker centre (Tekka Food Centre below the public housing block). A street of India restaurants located at Race Course Road.

If you are interested in life itself, Little India, bright city lights Chinatown, both are worth a walk through.

On a personal note, I prefer Little India for being authentic and real, Chinatown had lost its colors. Chinatown is never the Singapore Chinatown, more like a China Chinatown now
