My kid is making noise wanted to go shopping, so we decided to bring him over to Chinatown. There is a walking street full of souvenir shops at great prices. Next to it, restaurants and hawker centers are convenience for tourists.

Chinatown aka Niu Che Shui is an ethnic neighbourhood featuring distinctly Chinese cultural elements and a historically concentrated ethnic Chinese population. Chinatown is located near the heart of Singapore. Large sections of it have been declared national heritage sites officially designated for conservation by the Authorities.

Today's Chinatown comprises five districts; namely Telok Ayer, Bukit Pasoh, Tanjong Pagar, Kreta Ayer and Ann Siang Hill. Designated as conservation areas by the Urban Redevelopment Board in 1989, these districts have over the years cultivated their own unique identity.

Besides being known for its picturesque places of worship, Telok Ayer also features quirky shops, cafes and drinking holes, all found on the slopes of Ann Siang Hill. A recent influx of new businesses and developments have filled the slopes of Ann Siang Hill with quirky shops, cafes and drinking holes - making it a great weekend hangout for the younger crowd. The heart of Chinatown, Kreta Ayer is home to an assortment of traditional trades, homegrown brands and some of the best hawker food around.

Travelling to Chinatown is not difficult. Chinatown MRT Station (NE4/DT19) is a Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the North East Line and the Downtown Line in Singapore. On the North East Line, it lies between the Outram Park and Clarke Quay MRT stations and between Telok Ayer and Fort Canning MRT stations on the Downtown Line. It is directly below and serves the district of Chinatown. There are also many buses which serves this high traffic destinations.

My favorite place in Chinatown is the Chinatown Market and Food Centre. Basement is where the wet market is located. Here many people can get daily groceries at a very cheap rate. and of cause Level 1 is where there are many shops selling clothes and accessories at a very cheap rate too! Then at Level 2 is where the food centre is located. You must visit and try to know how good the food there is, there is also a wide range of variety of food.

Chinatown S'pore have a nice mixture of historical structures. There are many mode of transport to get you there. The easiest is take the train (SMRT). There are plenty bargain souvenirs outlet. The people there are friendly. You really need to venture the place on foot to find the hidden jewel. You will be surprised that you may stumble upon good bargain antiques. Food is not an issue coz you have plenty of selection. From fast food, hawker stalls or restaurant.
