This was quite interesting but a bit scruffy and smelly in places. It was also not that easy to get to from the MRT

One of the places to go shopping in Singapore. The souvenirs are mostly the same as other places, but how do you find that special thing if you don't look? Perhaps it's here. It has the only Michelin- star street food stall, which we didn't...More

We spent a morning visiting this area of Singapore- just out of curiosity. What surprised us is that we thought that most of the people/stallholders would be Chinese. In fact the majority were Indian. Also got some lovely buys.

Typical Chinese market area, with fruit and vegetables for sale, plus all the usual things available in a Chinese market. Very busy and sometimes the hawkers can be a bit pushy. 78% of Singaporeans are Chinese, so to see the 'real' Singapore it's recommended.

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.
