The Singapore Chinatown is a nice place to spend a few hours. The sellers are nice and not too intrusive (like their counterparts in KL), the restaurants are great, and if you want to buy genuine arts and crafts pieces you can actually make a find or two.

Enjoyable and rather cheap shopping spot.
Good food options available from juices to hot foods and everything was reasonably priced.

Dropped into Chinatown via the SMRT and took a good look around. It is starting to change but still has the various stores and individuals that are keen to get you in the door and make a sale.

Lots of food stalls and shopping stalls around. All you can do here is eat and shop! The food is good and the prices for shopping is not that expensive. Fake items are also rampant. But hey, it's "china" town ;)

Walked around the streets for an hour or so, found it a bit boring, with just many shops selling junky souvenirs. I thought it lacked history and character. Maybe I missed something.
