It's very interesting to visit a Chinatown in a country where Chinese are not a minority. I have been in many Chinatowns in different cities of the world and this one is completely unique. Something to visit ...

Lots of food to eat and many cafes around the area. It is probably the most touristy area. During the weekend nights, this street becomes the Jonker street night market.

Nothing much, no difference from any Chinatown. Has many shop selling identical stuff, even have few chicken rice stalls within Chinatown! Will not go or recommend. Only go if you like HnM, there is one pretty big located at entrance of honker walk aka Chinatown

just walk around and enjoy all the old houses. Only disadvantage is that sometimes there are too many cars.
