One of Singapore's most iconic attractions, with lots of food, shopping and culture. I enjoyed the Heritage Centre too. As a local, I feel that it does not accurately depict Singapore though as there is so much more to our city. The Food Street is overrated and overpriced, try a simple meal at a regular hawker centre instead. On the plus side, loads of cheap souvenirs to buy.

In China town you get to see all types of local food in the hawkers Street food corner. If you are a foodie and love Chinese food then you must visit China Town

The food in China Town made the visit worth while. Sitting in the street, enjoying dredging made dishes was enjoyable.
There is not much else to do other than eat. It was crowded and hot. There were so many people. Not a good place to bring your young children if they are walking on their own.
