Large market but unfortunately lots of repetition amongst the stalls. Singapore souvenirs are really cheap here, far cheaper than anywhere else we visited in Singapore.

Typical Chinatown like most other cities. Cheap souvenirs everywhere. Well lit at night. Not that much else to see though.

Away from the stalls aimed at tourists, it was a great experience. Big groups of older men playing draughts. Food hawkers upstairs great cheap food. One even has 1 Michelin Star. Lots of locals. Great atmosphere. Food market downstairs, especially fish market, was also interesting.

Chinatown is amazing as besides interesting Shophouses which are shops at the ground floor and living quarters (now mainly businesses) on the higher floors, there are Indian Temples and islamic Mosque within the area. Traditional trades such as bakery, medicine and eating houses still exist...More

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.
