“Medicore shopping but great food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2016

Market itself is average and nothing extraordinary, it's all different stalls selling the same things and variety is not that great. However, the food alley is cheap, delicious and the best thing about the whole place.

“Completely chaos during hara raya, but a decent place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2016 via mobile

Completely chaos during hara raya, but a decent place. Many stores selling all kinds of stuff that you dont really need. Friendly people. Place very similar to other china towns in other countries - does not bring you any news, but worth a walk :)

We've spent a few hours in Chinatown. It's all about shopping. Got ourselves some mandatory €5 raybans and other bits and bobs :) If you like shopping - go!

“A little disappointed ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2016 via mobile

I was a little disappoint in Chinatown, not much history, culture here just over crowded market place, where you can bargain for better price. Nothing special really.
