“Great bargains to be had, lots of stalls and nice temples to look at in the same area”
18 Feb 2018
“Don’t put this on your bucket list. ”
Not just for commercial dealings, the Central Business District is also home to some cheap shopping and bargain hunting – the China Square flea market is usually held on weekends, and has over 50 vendors peddling a huge range of collectibles and...more

I bought some dressing gowns for around 10 Singapore dollars. There was a lot of choice and some cheap souvenirs. There were some great temples to look at close by - free to enter - you need to leave your shoes outside. Taxis are very...More
We visit Singapore but how about our beloved. Their blessings and prayer made it possible. So time to thank them by getting some souvenir. This place is just perfect. What if we feel hungry in between. We don't have to worry as they have amazing...More

It is certainly colourful with stall after stall of Chinese made goods. If you want to take back home a little something that will cost you a few dollars then have a look here. For us it was a walk through experience.
Lots of stalls, shops selling everything under the sun. Toys, electronics, traditional Chinese dresses, chinaware...some usual, some strange.

We made two visits to the markets, there were clothing & manchester stalls with a good range and great value for money.

After shopping we were able to relax with a meal, and...More
Literally arrived in Singapore from Thailand today and made a beeline for the store.
Some interesting pieces but nothing special.

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.
