  • There are restaurants, souvenir shops and massage shops in the hotel, as well as a red-toned décor. There are a lot of comparatively cheap Singapore here in the high price.

  • Full of people, houses, stores, fast food restaurants, at places - interesting architecture; Chinese lanterns all over. Well worth a visit to soak up in Far Eastern culture, though in Singapore everything is a little bit different ... When we visited, it was the Chinese New Year, so a lot of decorations were spread all over.
  • Good place for buying souvenir and having NON VEG Chinese food and other foods. Mainly Beef, pork, duck, various sea foods, etc. Buddha Tooth Relic is a good Buddhist temple in China town. Many shops are wholesale kind.
  • So many food options! And outdoor covered seating which is nice. Take a walk around and find something that suits your tastes! It can get a little busy but just don't worry and you'll be eating in no time. Lots of gift shops with junk as well.
  • Visited this during Chinese New year week. Very crowded. Shops everywhere. Perfect for buying souvenirs. Was open till 11 pm. Lots of Chinese restaurants here. Prices fixed as displayed. Can't bargain.
  • What an awesome experience. Great street food and perfect place for your souvenir shopping. The best was the beautiful Buddha tooth temple.
