There are only about 3 streets where can go and walk around, nice feeling of China with low price merchandise. There are two special temples, one Hindi and another one is Chinese. By walking inside you get the local and spiritual feeling.
However, walking around without a guide will end in about 1 to 2 hours.

This place is a must for tourists and first time visitors.
It’s amazing how many shops and eateries are crammed into Chinatown.

My overseas friends were impressed with the range of knick knacks and souvenirs sold to suit their budget. One can find keychains, magnets, shawls, ornaments, etc. They returned to get more souvenirs.

The place is always filled with activity from afternoon till night. It becomes more festive as the Chinese New Year approaches. Then Singaporeans come to rub shoulders with their fellow citizens when the entire place is cramped and bustling.

Its alive with people and colour, can be a little annoying with the people pestering you. Its 'cheap' and simple. A must do when in the city. Get cash before you go, was running around looking for a cash machine as many places only take cash. Some of the restaurants staff have pretty basic English too which can be a little painful.

Visited Chinatown & spent half a day taking in the sights & sounds. The shops/stalls open mid morning & as you can imagine are aimed at the tourists. As with the rest of Singapore this is the most upmarket Chinatown I have been to,the place is so clean. The stalls sell all sorts of souvenirs & trinkets. Walk through the shops/stall & find Buddhist & Hindu temples.
We were with Chinese friends so crossed the main road via the foot bridge & ate (with the locals) in a large food hall (recommend) which sold all forms of food & was very cheap.
I would recommend Chinatown to people visiting Singapore for a stroll through which I'm sure would be found interesting.
