We went to one of the Hawkers here and a Michelin star eatery. Really enjoyable walking round and seeing all the different food at the hawkers and all the shops. Worth a visit to see the different culture.

Very crowded place swarming with people. Cheap souvenirs to be found. The food on the street is not that cheap nor that tasty. Overall a nice experience if you visit Singapore

The warren of small streets with old and well-preserved architecture is definitely worth a visit. Plus, the food in Maxwell Food Center is amazing. Tian Tian chicken may be a touristy stall, but it is darn good. So are the fried oyster cakes a few...More

Always enjoy visiting Chinatown in any city. But in Singapore it is something else. The rich heritage and colourful history and culture blended with amazing old world stories adds to the mystery and charm of Singapores largest ethnic group. Dont pass by......stop and enjoy.

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.
