  • 當然你如果是來尋找美食的遊客,那麼你肯定會來到這里,除了買東西外更不能錯過的是在這里的美食,其實雖然談不上什麼大菜,但我覺得來這里吃長城餐室的美食和買東西,就是每回來新加坡是我會做的事. 新加坡這里不在於吃那家餐廳,到長城餐室和某商店買肉骨茶和麻油,大慨就是我來這會做的事,有的朋友會到這里買些明信片,部份商店有賣郵票,在買之前可以問下有沒有郵票賣,能省到郵局買郵票的時間,牛車水這里也有郵局,但不太...  more »
  • Main street decorated with roosters which is this zodiac year. Must go place to get the lunar new year vibes, for locals and tourists! 
  • Beautiful buildings and very tourist friendly. No shortage of good food but definitely more expensive.

  • If you want to immerse yourself in the local culture and escape the tourist traps, this is the place. Local prices with real atmosphere and local characters/operators making sure you are looked after. Finding a table in the street can be tricky. Look out for tissue pack or umbrella marking the table as taken.
  • This place has excellent food choices from food vendors in these cute carts. I recommend bringing cash and watching your valuables. Lots of communal table seating. They have tasty seafood and quality curries. Try as many dishes as you can handle. It is all outdoors so prepare for the weather and humidity.
  • The staging is great with an outdoor covered area and a sufficient assortment of hawkers but the prices are for tourists
  • Good place for food but still expensive.. No problem, Singapore is always expensive.. Well maintained. But still some hawkers has to be fired for quality food purpose.
  • A must for those who are interested in local foods and experiencing a real street market atmosphere. Such a range of delicious cuisines at incredibly affordable prices. Just look for the stalls that have a big line up of locals and you can't go wrong!
