it is definitely a great place to go if you like everything Chinese. The food there are authentic, such as freshly baked egg tarts.And plenty stalls selling Chinese traditional decorations, antiques, etc. Very close to the train station, too. Very convenient location.

Singapore Chinatown is okay for a quick visit. However, after visiting India and China the price of trinkets seemed unreasonably expensive. We did do some bargaining and pricing was adjusted a bit. It didn't help that the place was overflowing with cruise line tourists that...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.
