Food streets, markets, general shopping. The night markets are fun and it’s worth a look around. I suspect we only scratched the surface.

The Singapore Chinatown is a nice place to spend a few hours. The sellers are nice and not too intrusive (like their counterparts in KL), the restaurants are great, and if you want to buy genuine arts and crafts pieces you can actually make a...More

Dropped into Chinatown via the SMRT and took a good look around. It is starting to change but still has the various stores and individuals that are keen to get you in the door and make a sale.

Lots of food stalls and shopping stalls around. All you can do here is eat and shop! The food is good and the prices for shopping is not that expensive. Fake items are also rampant. But hey, it's "china" town ;)

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

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.
