China town has a sharp contrast of low rise buildings and temples. This area has plenty of heritage and is bursting at the seems with culture. Temples, street stalls, shopping malls, restaurants, spas are just some of the experiences you will have here. However, you must be patient with the crowds and similarities on offer. The buildings are amazing and... More

We went here to buy souvenirs etc. The street market is quite large and as with a lot of street markets a lot of stalls are similar. We did spend quite a long time here as there were things we had not seen in other markets. Beware if anyone wants to show you around as this is just a way... More

Chinatown stands true to it's name. Very Chinese in experience and appearance.It is a great place to get a bit of shopping done. The Chinatown MRT station leads straight into the street. Clean, cheap and loads of varieties of food and shops.

Bit disappointed in Chinatown Singapore compared with the one in Kuala Lumpur. Not a lot of choice of goods for sale. They were getting geared up for the Chinese New Year and there were lots of colourful stalls and roosters around and about.

You will find great shops selling traditional Chinese items. Shops like Woo Chun Long selling Chinese grocery items such as sauce to prepare Hainan Chicken Rice, Coconut jam or... More

if you're thinking of buying a lot of souvenirs then you definitely must visit Chinatown! From keychains to t-shirts, you'll definitely get a good bargain on anything! But first, try to roam around the whole place before deciding to buy because different stores offer different prices. The ones located deep inside Chinatown have the best bargain prices! and when you... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
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 the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
