Everytime I visit Singapore, I always spent time here.. Easy to get there.. We can find a lot of souvenirs , many nice restaurants, or just sitting watching the crowd.

There were numerous shops selling potions for every conceivable ailment. Markets were selling a variety of goods and food and the atmosphere was incredible. There were temples adorned with ancient images and one temple had a religious icon made in gold from offerings by the visiting public which weighed in excess of 100kg. A religious ceremony was taking plcae in the lower levels if the temple and this was quite a moving spectacle

Here you can learn the history of the Peranakan Chinese in Singapore, eat some famous chicken rice, and poke around all of the fabulous little shops, many featuring items with the intricate beadwork that the Chinese here are famous for. Also many other tasty restaurants featuring other types of cuisine.

I've visited Chinatown on a number of occasions. It is always a great stop for everyone in the family. Whether old or young, there seems to be something that appeals to everyone. Many shop owners may say hello and invite you in, but you will not feel pressured, as you would in some other similar marketplaces. There are plenty of places to stop for food and a drink. Be sure to check out the ice cream vendor at the corner of Pagoda and South Bridge streets for a unique Singaporean treat.
