Also, you can change the foreign money in the building just opposite to the Chinatown Main Street. The exchange rate is better. Room is clean, tidy and air-con. Just one suggestion to the hostel to provide a...

We got a private room there - small, dark, with a bunk bed (for 90 sgd a night!! Singapore is expensive). We had to use the common bathrooms, but they were rather clean. Breakfast is just toast and milk and cereals. Typical youth hostel, hippie style. I felt like being 18 again. The location is absolutely unbeatable - close to...

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
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. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
