Chinatown is a must do when you go to Singapore, allow plenty of time to stroll around the markets/shops/eateries. most of it is out in the open though so be prepared for the heat.

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
