  • If you are looking for some cheap souvenir items , you should visit this place ..easy to find the place by china town mrt station.. have some good Chinese food also in the area .. 
  • 牛車水的建築物非常有當地特色,融合多種樣貌,可以在這找到許多中藥行,maxwell中心的海南雞飯更不能錯過,可惜紀念品種類不多樣,適合走馬看花

  • 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!
