“Busy on weekends”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago

I visited Chinatown during the week and it wasn't very crowed. Lots of small shops with touristy toys and clothes. The food was ok from what I saw and had. I spent an hour or so and that was enough for me to get the idea of chinatown. I didn't explore as much I might have. There is a traditional temple in the area that I didn't visit during my stay in Singapore.

Little China here... get in touch with the culture, the food, souvenirs, handicrafts and all you can buy here. Prices are reasonable and you can also bargain.

“Food and souvenirs !! ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

If you are in Singapore and looking for souviners and hawker food then this is the best place to visit. It's accessible via train, bus and public bus. Before you buy in one store better to walk around first take look which store have the cheapest one because sometimes they have different prices and offer and quality as well. Most stores start at 10AM until 8PM.

“Great Atmosphere, great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago

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 1 week ago 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.
