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.
Recently visited Chinatown and the Heritage Centre. I am so pleased we did as this gave us an insight into how the Chinese immigrants lived when they came to Singapore for, hopefully a better life! It was so interesting to see how people lived in the”shop houses” and seemed unbelievable that 8 people lived and worked in such small rooms....
Enjoyed a morning walking and exploring this temple. There was some amazing chanting going on in the main room and beautiful garden on the roof. Also this place is free to enter which is always great. Remember to cover up your legs and maybe shoulders.

Had great honey roast pork at mr whites (don’t know real name ... sorry) he gave himself this nickname
Cheap lunchtime food
It’s an amazing face to face experience with something extraordinary. Not your everyday kind of architecture design, this building really looks amazing, exotic, sacred, mesmerizing and artistic. This is a religious place.
Another example of Islamic Indian architecture in Singapore, this time in the heart of Chinatown, right beside Hindu, Chinese and Buddhist temples, as well as a church! This green mosque standing tall with its 2 minarets at the entrance is also a national monument of Singapore though it is so simple and modest in shape. It is not much but...
Chef Stephan, Young craetive chef with many ideals and always wanting new dishes in this menu. Have been creating many dishes with various techniques/methods of cooking combination of western, authentics and also many local dishes with his own ways presenting beautiful dishes that is first pleasing to dinners eyes and full of flavours that draw regulars.
My first visit to meta on their new location. Nothing very new to me as I visited the previous establishment of that premise but still I like the cozy and spacious environment and the ever ready service staff always paying attention to your needs.
About the food, I was not too impressed with the appetiser as it tasted a little...
Excellent start and end to the pre-set menu: delicious, innovative, attractive. What happened to the mains in the middle: handsome but comparatively without interesting flavor. For the price, the experience should be consistently excellent.
Staff was knowledgable and charming.
House wine a very nice find.
Celebrating my private banker and great friend “retirement” dinner (she somehow paid at the end) Hui took me to this small restaurant on Kwong Saik Road, near China Town and Duxton Hill, called CURE and told me that these days she much prefers owner chef restaurants! Now CURE is an restaurant serving modern innovative European cuisine curated by Andrew Walsh....
Excellent location, just take less than 1 minutes to go to famous food court - Maxwell and take around 2-3 minutes to go to China Town. But some of the facilities are not in good condition, for example the bath room door, the shower and tv.
Hotel is directly at the China Town subway station.
Take exit E instead of the Upper Cross Road direction, than you just need to cross the street for the entrance of the hotel.
Very comfortable bed.
Only minus point is the lack of storage space. No cabinet at all.

Hotel 1929 is a small and clean hotel in Chinatown. Booked the room seeing the availability of restaurant from their official website. But unfortunately they did not have one in their hotel when i reached.
Hotel staff was kind enough to give an early checkin. Room was small and had a wash basin near the bed. Room was clean with...
We had a great stay here. Although it is pricey due to its prime location but it worth the price. Good bed and cleanliness and the place looks new. It’s my second time staying here and i will definitely come back here again for my next SG trip.
After much deliberation we decided to stay in the Chinatown area of Singapore as it seemed an easy option for exploring the rest of Singapore in our short visit. We chose the Southbridge as it was good value compared to the other Singapore options. We booked direct through the website which was the cheapest way as it included 25% off...
