Always enjoy visiting Chinatown in any city. But in Singapore it is something else. The rich heritage and colourful history and culture blended with amazing old world stories adds to the mystery and charm of Singapores largest ethnic group. Dont pass by......stop and enjoy.

But there are several nooks and crannies that you can discover if you look hard enough. Places where locals hang out to chat or have a nap on benches. Also better eateries than the ones found here which can be a tourist trap.

During our 3 visits to Singapore we have seen different things in the city. However, Chinatown was on top of the list each time. It is because of its colonial character pushed down between the skyscrapers. It is also because of the shopping for local...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
