  • The atmosphere in Chinatown is just great. Although it is relatively close to the central business district, you truly feel in Asia here. I think the contrasts is one of the most interesting aspects of Singapore. I would really recommend walking through the streets of Chinatown.
  • Great place to visit, lots of stalls & shops for food, souvenirs, cameras, clothes etc. I enjoyed a leisurely stroll through, some of the prices were reasonable and some were not but then I suppose you could always negotiate. I think this place is a must to see, quite similar to Temple Street in Hong Kong.
  • went there for souvenirs and bargains. found what we were looking for
  • Compare to Little India, Bugis street market and similar, - which are the main places for 'touristy souvenirs' this is my favourite one. It has a great variety of shops and stalls spread over quite a few streets, some more upmarket then others, - however you will soon realise that the majority offer the same type of stuff, which means that if you can be bothered to have a look around first rather then get carried away buying the first thing you see, - you will be in a position to haggle which may save you a few $$ if you need to get quite a few things...which you can then spend on some yummy food However, - if you want some more unique/unusual gifts and or less commercial than i would recommend heading over to Haji Lane as the little shops there are something else...
  • Many Chinese new year goodies and souvenirs
