    Among the shophouses of Singapore’s’ Chinatown, we were surprised to discover the district’s colourful street art and iconic Chinese and Hindu temples. We were amzzed by the new art works you can find around the area

    I went to the temple twice, once for an overall view and then for an experience with meditation. I enjoyed both times. The museum and garden are great as well, I advise to take time for the visit. Be mindful with your clothing, although they do provide shawls if necessary. I had a tour guide and this really elevated my experience. Highly recommend a visit.

    I went there at around 4:30pm, not very crowded but quite hot. Suitable for a quick local meal especially their soup noodles and Hannanese Chicken Rice.

    Really interesting heritage museum. Very small, quick and easy to get around but worth it to understand the heritage of Singapore.

    Worth popping in for a look around as the temple is beautiful and the colours stunning. You have to remove your shoes as it is a place of worship so be respectful and keep to the areas where tourists are allowed.

    Allow about 15 minutes or so to walk around and take a few photos.

    We went last week and had so much fun with Mary and Annie leading us not only a through the fabulous food we prepared from scratch ( a yummy chicken curry, roti jala and tapioca desert) but also the rich heritage of Singapore.
    I would highly recommend this wonderful experience, you will have a great laugh and time. And of course eat the food you've prepared.

    Happened upon this delightful store, attracted by some beautiful little blue tea bowls on the display outside. As we went in to pay we realised that this little shop was full of treasures! Talk to Elaine Ong, because she will tell you about some of the interesting coins, Cambodian silver, and opium pipes, as well as some of the blue ceramics no longer made, as the particular shade of blue is no longer produced. Beautiful items, not plastic tat, and interesting antique items to browse through. Well worth a visit.

    My first time ever VR experience, coming from someone who has never even played on consoles and it took my breath away. Had an eight year old with us and he enjoyed it immensely. Darsh was patient, friendly and efficient. The place is a bit hidden but easy enough to find. Highly recommended.

    Chinese New Year is celebrated throughout the Asian region. It is often called Lunar New Year, as it is celebrated throughout Asia. Lunar New Year is celebrated according to the Lunar calendar. Apart from Singapore, the Lunar New Year is celebrated in Korea and Taiwan. In mainland China, it is celebrated as the Spring Festival. Of course, the Lunar New Year is celebrated in Chinatowns around the world. The method of celebration is similiar -- feasting, exchanging red envelopes and lots of fireworks!

    We found numerous shops, money changers with good rates and massage places to explore in the People's park complex. The food court down the bottom offers value for money and we ate there a couple of times trying different foods each time. A great place to explore right near Chinatown.

    Great area which has a vibrant feel to it. It also feels very safe compared to other Chinatowns. Lots of shops selling interesting souvenirs. Also lots of eateries which do various interesting Chinese meals

    Tea Chapter is a mighty fine place for tea lovers, I tell you! The atmosphere is so peaceful and cozy, it makes you feel right at home. The selection of teas is top-notch, offering some darn good flavors. We tried the Shui Jin Gui, which means "Golden Turtle" in Chinese, and it was a wonderful experience. The folks working there really know their stuff and guide you on how to brew the tea just right. With some tasty snacks to go along, Tea Chapter is a special spot for anyone wanting to enjoy and learn more about tea, whether you're an expert or just curious.

    Great shop full of everything from kitsch to genuine antiques. Goh and his family are friendly and informative, relaxed and helpful. I enjoyed looking at hundreds of gorgeous things and will go back again to see more. Loved it, a wonderful shop one of the best in Singapore for antiques.

    New buildings with various restaurants and renovate urban park above Tanjon Pagar Mrt station will just astonish people passing by. Either the stylish skylines or the greenery path ways certainly relax and release urban tensions.

    There were lots of shops here. It’s across from the blue line stop at Chinatown. Good food, good coffee (aside from Starbucks and maccas). Fairly clean. Although no seats to sit and rest after walking around all day.
