What a great place to before watch and enjoy a great variety of street food for not much money. Tiger beer is a speciality of the area and was served nice and cold.

Haven't got time to visit more, but if you walk and shop on Orchard Road, I am sure that would very much be enough for a shopper!

It is possibly the cleanest and best organised Chinatown we have ever visited. A lot of fun, especially at night. Great selection of food!

Lots to see and experience in Chinatown. Great place to buy souvenirs, much cheaper here. When visiting Singapore this should be on your list of places to see.

Great just to walk through Chinatown to experience the sights, sounds and smell of the restaurants. Unrivalled selection of cafes and restaurants although some are better than others. Avoid the Chinatown Seafood Restaurant as it’s unhygienic and serving poor food. See other review on that...More

Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.
