The food was probably the highlight of our visit to Chinatown. There are so many to choose from. Be sure to walk around the market.

Had a fantastic day in Chinatown. So much shopping and sooo much food. You have to look for the bargains because most are peddling the same items but definitely worth it for a day out. Great food and you can haggle prices. We were there just before Chinese New Year so it was very busy. Definitely a must do in... More

We were there in the lead up to Chinese New Year and the whole area was ablaze with light and colour. We had a good meal in one of the many street cafes. And loved wandering through the many market stalls

China town is great for trinket and souvenir shopping. One of my favourite places in Singapore. Many restaurants to choose.from, food is very cheap and most of the restaurants have free wifi, which was a bonus when travelling with teenagers

Although most of the stalls seem to have a lot of the same "made in China" stuff, one really can pick up a good bargain on souvenirs etc. There are some fabulous food stalls

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
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.
