The last time we visited Chinatown was in April, 2019. It was a very different experience visiting in late January this year. The main streets are decorated for Chinese New Year, and you can buy anything you need to decorate your house, to eat, or might want to have for Chinese New Year. It can be very crowded though, and in these Covid times, a bit stressful.

Many stalls were closed but still enough to satisfy the shopper. Restaurants still open although not all food stalls. Explore the area: the Buddha Tooth Temple, Taoist Temple is worth a visit; Nus Baba House as well. Heritage Centre was not open but having visited in the past- it is also worth a visit.

Lots of eateries and shopping around. Although the food street was closed due to Covid, still got lots of food and shopping places nearby.

In this very modern city it is nice to find some old-fashioned charm and architecture. Also a good place to find a simple restaurant, which is what we did for lunch.

There is a traditional market in Singapore. We can find many local food or some special cuisine from the South sea. The most impressed me is the BBQ pork rice. It's taste like heaven, it was so delicious like I have never tried before. There are also some street vendors outside the market. We can buy some souvenir there, and also experience their culture around the street.

Locate right in the middle of busy Chinatown and CBD, this place is amazingly maintained and sacred. Must visit for everyone visiting Singapore. Don't forget to visit the orchid garden at roof top.

Historic district of Singapore with rich culture and traditions. Check out one of the Chinese restaurants there, or dine at the hawker centre with lots of stalls offering yummy food. Also, visit the Buddha tooth relic temple, especially the rooftop for some stunning views.
