Lots of red, golden and yellow colours. Lots of stuff to buy, remember to bargain! Food Street has excellent small kiosk restaurants where you can eat excellent food. Very typical tourist attraction but at the same time unique experience. A world of its own. Worth visiting!

I got suckered. Plain and simple. I was not looking for a suit and then I got approached by a guy who was pleasant enough and eventually convinced me to go and look for a new custom suit. I did, I paid, more than I had planned and the clothes turned out to be a disaster of cut, finish, quality and more. The name of the place that you want to avoid at all costs is Royal Myers Jewellers & Trading and you can spot it at No.9 Trengganu in Chinatown. Avoid your own disappointments, stay away and tell your friends to do the same.

Beware of shopping in People's Complex. There's a company, not sure it exists in books, called "Elvis Amber instyle" and they claim to sell silk duvets which are actually polyester duvets.

Chinatown in Singapore is definitely worthwhile a visit, especially the local restaurants and delicious authentic food.

Al the other tourist ‘crap’ is just for fun.

This man is less than honest and has no conscience at all. Carefully watch his over inflated prices and lying spiel to suck you in, be carefull of his strategically placed finger over the price when signing your credit card receipt and watch how the paperwork is sealed in an envelope when handed to you, he then has a minion whisk you quickly off to the to the Gold Factory before you check the transaction. Also for obvious reasons he is very reluctant to accept cash....he would get caught out with his slight of hand.
NOT A NICE MAN WATCH HIM VERY CAREFULLY OR BETTER STILL AVIOD HIM LIKE THE PLAGUE

It was a surprise for me an exceptional and unexpected surprise, I never thought to find a neighborhood so animated and lively, a very picturesque touristic but frankly I really liked the style of terraced houses, each of them colorful and very showy a context delicious.
Walking through these streets you have the chance to do good business, but also to find those foods that can be found only here, for example, I was attracted by the very good but not so famous Soursop juice, well here I found it at just S$ 2.
A visit around the Chinatown Street Market takes approximately 1 hour or so, but it is a must to visit.

The Chinatown street market encompasses four main streets which include Pagoda, Temple, Smith and Sago streets and narrow lanes with an endless variety of tourist style stalls.

Tt is easy to spend several hours here shopping for bargains, although many cheap souvenirs are most abundant.

There is also plenty of pastries, several restaurants and cafes to indulge your taste buds along Chinatown Food Street.

Me and my wife visited the Chinatown Street Markets in Jan 2014.

The Chinatown Light-up before the Chinese New Year is the most vibrant period for Chinatown every year. The Decorations in Chinatown Area coupled with the Chinese New Year Decorations put up for sale by the Street Market Vendors really brightens up the whole of Chinatown. There were more than 70% of the Street Market Stalls selling Chinese New Year Decorations and Traditional Chinese Food Stuff like Pastries, Cookies, Tit-bits, Candies, Dried Fruits, Nuts, BBQ Pork Slice, Chinese Sausage, etc. Most of the Stalls were selling similar items at very competitive prices so as to lure customers to their stalls. There are many Eateries and Restaurants around Chinatown offering a wide range of food to cater for your choice of meal.

On my day of visit, the Streets in Chinatown were jammed pack with locals and tourists. There were many locals doing some serious last minute shopping for the Chinese New Year while the tourists were simply enjoying and soaking in the Festive Atmosphere.

We enjoyed visiting the Chinatown Street Markets just before the Chinese New Year every year as this is the period when you can see Chinatown at its Best.
