It is phenomenal that most of the buildings and stores are keeping their original charm. Try to visit early in the morning as some stores close quite early. Comfortable shoes is essential and prepare to take many shots as the architecture are unique. Vibrant colour from building to building, never a dull moment. I was certainly distracted by different eateries... More

Over here there are many interesting souvenir shops whereby you can find nice art pieces to decorate your house. Also there are local delicacies whereby you can enjoy. Good to walk around

Disappointed that there was nothing really exciting in Chinatown. Probably because this is a mainly Peranakan Area.

It will be nice if you put up a night or two in this so called "Chinatown", as a matter of fact, it is just next to lots of the famous attraction including Jonker walk, the red house, church, chumg hwa chicken rice etc etc. You don't even need a car for all these attractions.

It is so nice to go round China town. My little one loved it. We walked and we went on a trishaw. There are nice places to eat, friendly people and some lovely temples.

To the Chinese locals, this area is known as Old City. The place was the city center a few hundred years ago. Plenty of old shops selling food and various items and temples to visit.
