I love the fact that Chinatown nestles in such a modern city that towers above.

Dwarfed by modern skyscrapers, it is an atmospheric area full of quirky streets, old temples and markets selling all manner of weird and wonderful items. It's also home to some of the best restaurants in the city. If you visit Singapore, Chinatown is a must-visit, not least because of its proximity to other attractions.

We have been to Singapore three times, and each time Chinatown is on top of our to do list. Also the train takes you straight there. There are plenty of stalls, and also places to sit and have a beer. One of our usual places is currently having a makeover, they specialise in seafood but have a great menu. There was another eating and drinking place not far away. You can pick up some great souvenirs and barter is the way to go.

Lots of atmosphere. Shops and places to eat traditional Chinese food. Cheap prices. MRT has a stop/station there and was plenty of taxis about when we visited. Interesting at night also as it all lights up.

This is a nice market to go and collect some memories for your trip, near and dear ones. Many local shops and local articles are available.

We visited China town during my business visit, good atmosphere and lots of restaurants.
We dined in one on the main drag which was ok. $45 for black Pepper crab, around £33/ head with a couple of drinks.
Over all pretty good.
