This old section is overrated. One street sells mostly trinkets. A few old buildings survive, but the overall feeling of a community apart isn't there.

The good was pretty amazing but not cheap! We had one crab between us as it was $54 and only for lunch, pretty good though. We didn't feel hassled at all and the things we bought, other than the crab, was reasonably priced. It was very busy but full of atmosphere.

Chinatown is a vibrant, colourful and busy place with lots of shops and places to eat. From the Chinatown MRT station take the Pagoda Street exit and you come up into the heart of Chinatown. This street has many restored shophouses. There are temples, mosques and Hindu temples close by and a visitors centre as well.

This place is great for a bargain and a great place for cheap food. This is where you should buy your chicken rice from as it's cheap and also the best we found in Singapore

There is only a small area of the old China Town remaining in Singapore (about seven streets covering about four city blocks). The old buildings and streets (decorated accordingly), remain as a reminder of Singapore's past. Numerous traders still fill these vibrant streets as the area offers numerous Asian food outlets, tailors, the usual tourist fare of gift shops and a number of specialist Chinese arts and supplies. One street is entirely devoted to a variety of Asian restaurants and street stalls selling a vast variety of meals including the locally famous chicken rice and chilli crabs. I am convinced that the buyer needs to be wary in this tourist spot as the cheapest prices and best product will not always be found here. (One restaurant inflated their bill by a few dollars by not disclosing all costs in their menu). A number of points of interest for the tourist are in the vicinity and can be located on the many tourist maps available through several tourist information booths available in China Town. Nearby these seven streets of old China Town are a number of city blocks of the newer China Town with businesses offering a range of Asian products and their prices are competitive. (I saw fewer "Westerners" here). There is so much to see and do in this area of Singapore that the tourist should allow a number of hours in their itinerary. Accessing the China Town area is easy by bus or the MRT. (Public transport costs are very reasonable and the tourist could avoid the expensive cost of tours and tourist hop on and off buses with a little effort). There is also a free bus operating hourly to and from the Great World City Shopping Centre.
