We went here for the morning. It was a visual overload with bright coloured things everywhere. The best place to buy souvenirs to take home. Lots of great places to eat.

Great place to visit, so many places to eat including in the streets. Not expensive and so many choices. As with everywhere else in Singapore beer is not cheap but has to be seen.

We arrived fairly early off the MRT. Already butling and at times chaotic. Loved the atmosphere. My teenagers enjoyed the stalls and got some great buys after haggling. The area itself was really interesting. Worth looking out for the michelin star hawker restaurant.

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.
