There are lots of good food and restaurants along this stretch of road and in the neighborhood. Do walk further down to the Tanjong Pagar Food Center where you can find cheap but delicious local food. The food center is opposite the Tanjong Pagar MRT station about 10 minutes walk away.

South of Chinatown, the Tanjong Pagar Rd with its beautifully renovated houses is a centre of nightlife with its many restaurants, cafés, bistros, and bars. Here, the prices are reasonable, and the area is not overrun by tourists, bug caters to the well-off singaporean. Enjoy your drinks and meals in pleasently air-conditioned places and avoid overpriced open food markets (e.g.... More

Not much to see here unless you are shopping for wedding dressing or picking high end restaurants to eat at. There is an entire row of boutiques selling wedding dresses, if you cannot find a dress at one shop, do pop into the next one and take a look. The restaurants here serve delicious food, but do make sure you... More

Tanjong Pagar is quite quickly shaping up to be a lively commercial district, with the ongoing construction of Singapore's tallest building, the Tanjong Pagar Centre. Still, it is a neighbourhood where old meets new: modern boutique hotels sit comfortably among pre-war shophouses. Most of the shophouses have been given a new identity as fancy cafes, restaurants, bars, dance studios, spas,... More

There are a few lovely historic buildings here and the old Jinrikisha station - all of which make for interesting photos, but that is about it. More often than not we were just passing through on the way back to our hotel.

This place still offers an experience of the big one ear - walking around here will leave you craving for more . The easy access by the public transport SMRT subway and the buses makes it easy . Walking shoes are helpful .

This area has lots of old shophouses that have been refurbished to their former glory. They are now occupied on the ground floor by many bridal shops and restaurants. On the upper floors are offices. Good to visit if you are into architecture or old buildings or if you are getting married and want to get a bridal gown. The... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
