Little China here... get in touch with the culture, the food, souvenirs, handicrafts and all you can buy here. Prices are reasonable and you can also bargain.

If you are in Singapore and looking for souviners and hawker food then this is the best place to visit. It's accessible via train, bus and public bus. Before you buy in one store better to walk around first take look which store have the cheapest one because sometimes they have different prices and offer 😜 and quality as well.... More

What a great place to walk around. It's showpiece this year was the Chinese New Year Cockerel, in all its glory, right at the beginning of Chinatown. There are many streets and sights to see, with some great, if now slightly faded, architecture, including a fantastic food street, as well as many other restaurants and shops. Certainly a lot of...

In China town we can find anything. But in the China town for tourist the prices are not really interesting. The temple is fantastic very nice with a particular atmosphere when the monks prayed.

Around the world any China town is worth the visit for the colour and if you're into street food also a bite to eat. As you would expect Singapore has a great China town so it's worth a visit if only for a half day. We also found some great restaurants and bars in China Town

Spent few hrs here. A lot of shops for the souvenir hunters, standard tourist items, not pricey. Some restaurants in area with good looking food and great prices. Cold beer a must in this hot climate. Very chill atmosphere and welcoming for shoppers or browsers. We went in evening two separate times and it was chill no issues for take... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
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. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
