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.
"Interesting Mosque in Chinatown near the other temples, worth a quick visit"

This Mosque was build somewhere between 1820 and 1830 depending on who you believe. In any case it is quite old and is still a small Mosque which is used daily.
It is on Bridge Road just down from Sri Mariamman and two blocks from Buddha tooth also.
Worth a quick visit. The facade has two tall minarets in typical...
The street links Trengganu Street to South Bridge Road and has been converted into a pedestrian mall. Once a place home to brothels, it now houses food outlets, bars, retail shops and on the other side, there is a row of pushcarts selling a range of items.
This place is a must visit when in SG! Go to the bar and start the evening right with some of the best bar food I have ever had. Obviously you have to combine that with some of the best drinks in the world by Joe and his team! I will be back for an extended evening soon!
We had a team dinner at Meta on a week night. We had the five course tasting menu.
Service was friendly but not overly formal. The food was interesting - Korean and Japanese influences which was different. A fun venue for an evening event.
Seating wise, the seating is bar style seating which can be a bit uncomfortable.
Based on other review sites, I estimated the cost for two for dinner with drinks to be around 180SGD. However, we ended up spending only around SGD100 for appetizer, main course and non-alcoholic beverages. The portion sizes are small but filling. The Sea Urchin Pudding was a 5 on 5. The Duck Rillette a 4/5 and the Beef Tongue Escalope...
The Club is a renovated Chinatown shophouse and it is quite modern and chic. The standard room is quite large and comfortable. It comes with a Nespresso machine and a complimentary minibar that is stocked with juices, soda pop, and water. However, the best feature is the bed! I never thought I would say the bed would be the center...
"Quirky place, with a lot of personality. Won't suit everyone though"
reviewed 2 weeks ago by Jonny S
So I stayed at the Scarlet as I had a few extra days in Singapore recently, and it was conveniently located for my trip.
It's definitely a funky place, with an interesting vibe. Staff were very friendly and chatty, and quick to help. Decor is 'quirky' - this is a boutique hotel in a heritage building and it's full of...
We chose to return to this hotel because it’s clean and comfortable with a great location. It’s a no frills hotel but in the past when we’ve had a late flight out they were happy to accommodate our luggage and give us towels for a shower on our return.
The location is a big plus as it’s across the road...
A very beautiful hotel indeed, visually, interior and exterior, and also functional at the same time. Great location nearby the Chinatown (I took a walk to Potato Head). But somehow it felt cold maybe because of it lacks interaction. It felt like sleeping inside a sci-fi props.
Good stay and generally quite accomodating.
Requested for a room with a balcony to smoke prior to check in and they delivered their request, so I am happy with that.
The room is quite small but I find it cozy and perfect for resting. The Wi-Fi is strong. While I love how close I am to the bathroom (fantastic view...
