“Great Atmosphere, great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

What a great place to walk around. It's showpiece this year was the Chinese New Year Cockerel, in all its glory, right at the beginning of Chinatown.

There are many streets and sights to see, with some great, if now slightly faded, architecture, including a fantastic food street, as well as many other restaurants and shops. Certainly a lot of the food was not Chinese as we know it in UK, think we took a lot of poetic licence in some of our Chinese food names..
If you want it, you can surely get it, in Chinatown.

“Amazing food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 days ago NEW via mobile

We walked through Chinatown and went to the Chinatown Complex food hall (up a level from the street) and lined up for an hour for Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken and Noodle (so worth it! $2 for an amazing meal)

One of us stayed in queue and another went and bought $2 pineapple juices from the stall opposite and also ate amazing coconut buns from the next row of stalls. YUM!

We also walked around Chinatown and visited the visitor information centre - very helpful.

There is so much to see and eat! Highly recommended.

“China town and temple”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago NEW via mobile

In China town we can find anything. But in the China town for tourist the prices are not really interesting. The temple is fantastic very nice with a particular atmosphere when the monks prayed.

“A great chinatown”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

Around the world any China town is worth the visit for the colour and if you're into street food also a bite to eat. As you would expect Singapore has a great China town so it's worth a visit if only for a half day. We also found some great restaurants and bars in China Town

“Late post”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

Spent few hrs here. A lot of shops for the souvenir hunters, standard tourist items, not pricey. Some restaurants in area with good looking food and great prices. Cold beer a must in this hot climate. Very chill atmosphere and welcoming for shoppers or browsers. We went in evening two separate times and it was chill no issues for take home souvenirs.
