Great tourist attraction. It’s not for the faint hearted or fussy when it comes to eating here. Food is good.

Vibrant night life it small area. It’s easy walking among the bars. There are prostitutes working so be very careful and would not take kids.

We had a really good time walking around the stalls and stores in Chinatown area. There is just so much to see and if you want to pick up really good souvenirs and reasonably priced gifts there is no shortage of those. Embroidered Satin purses and sets of coaster are all great buys here. Food stalls serve very tasty quality dishes. We are so glad we spent an entire day here!

We have been to Chinatown in Singapore many times; we have a favourite place to sit at tables a bit away from those who determinedly (and sometimes annoyingly!) try to get you to sit near their restaurants/stalls. It’s toward one end where there are mostly outdoor tables along each side of the street. It might be more touristy/costly than the hawker centre near the airport, but the food is recognisable to most westerners ie. not many dishes have fish heads floating/eyeballing you like at airport centre. If you do want traditional locals’ food go there but take some wipes to clean down seats and tables. Chinatown has more staff clearing tables etc so appeals more to us. Another time we plan on going to centre near Botanic Gardens.

The area is OK for a walk around and the street food, get there in the SMRT. Unless you are hungry and need to shop for the usual Chinatown items expect to spend about an hour there.

Quite busy (lots of tourists), but some interesting buildings and plenty of food. Definitely worth a visit when you're in Singapore.

China Town was a great stop and just a short Underground ride down the line from Little India.

The Street of Food has something for every palate. As exotic or not as you wish. Most vendors have some degree of English and we had no problem communicating. Cash is King, however, and don’t plan on being able to use a credit card.

The Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum was fascinating and we were lucky enough to be there on a holiday to witness a wonderful service.

What a great cultural experience!!

Really take the time to explore Chinatown outside of the usual Buddha tooth relic temple and the cheap markets on Pagoda street. The Chinatown Heritage centre was really a highlight for us in understanding the history of Singapore and Chinatown. Great restaurant offerings, bakeries and Chinese medicine outlets.

The place is a treat itself in terms of foods. Lots to choose from and very affordable. You will have a feast for sure. There are lots of temples that you can visit and just walking distance too! Riding the train is the fastest and easy way in going there.

People everywhere hot smelly but the shopping is amazing. Barter for a good price or walk away. Clothes jewelry or get a piece of clothing made especially for you.
