This is a great place to go to eat and pick up the odd bargain. Lovely and clean and eateries are scattered throughout. Would thoroughly recommend. Suitable for families and couples. Huge choice of food.

Plenty of colourful shops selling cheap souvenirs and many affordable eating options in market setting. Vibrant and enjoyable.

A great place to buy cheap souvenirs, but the food was the highlight. Cheap market food, allowing you the luxury to try many of the local dishes. I really liked the ambience and general hustle and vibe of the area.

Arguably the markets compose most of Chinatown vibe, life, moho, whatever you want to call it. You will find yourself submerged in a crowd that is looking for souvenirs, gifts, spices, anything really and sometimes it will be overwhelming. The best thing you should do...More

Beautiful Chinatown, filled with nice-looking buildings, lots of colour, and lots of trinkets and souvenirs for sale. There is one street that is covered that is full of restaurants. I didn't notice any Chinese supermarkets though, so I guess the locals buy their groceries elsewhere.

Really lively at night, with colours, lights, good food smell, noise. Typical of Singapore, even Malay and Hindu merchants plying their trade at Chinese New Year! A must for visitors. Locals do shop here too.

Chinatowns are pretty similar in most towns but I liked this one. a bunch of different streets and not all the same stuff. They also had a number of indoor locations, and some temples to see.

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.
