The lanterns lighting the streets are lovely and quirky and there is an array of food on offer. There are also lots of quirky clothes/souvenir stalls. Some restaurants are expensive for backpackers, but if you walk near the MRT station there's a place called Hawkers...More

Dropped into Chinatown via the SMRT and took a good look around. It is starting to change but still has the various stores and individuals that are keen to get you in the door and make a sale.

Lots of food stalls and shopping stalls around. All you can do here is eat and shop! The food is good and the prices for shopping is not that expensive. Fake items are also rampant. But hey, it's "china" town ;)

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.
