“China in Singapore”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2015 via mobile

Well worth a visit, even if just to walk around and see the sights. Loads of stalls of various products and foods. Can pick up some bargains but need to shop around and also barter price. Quality in some places better than others, but some great local products on offer.

“China Town Singapore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2015

You can spend hours just wandering around the shops and restaurants . Some very strange sights and smells but well worth the visit as you don't need to spend money if you do not want to . Try and visit when of the festivals is on to see the streets and shops decorated .

Lots of inexpensive shops and restaurants. Very colourful, vibrant and safe at night. Don't forget to visit the indoor market.

“Tourist trap ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2015 via mobile

Good bargains to be had but be prepared to look, only the facades are authentic.
Worth a look.
If you have time visit the Indian temple and get off the tourist streets.
