  • It's a combined version of flea market and wet market. Here you can explore the daily lives of many Chinese Singaporeans, especially the older generation. They like to gather at this place to get away from the heat, chatting with friends and playing chess. You can also hear numerous long lost Chinese dialects these old people are using, notably Cantonese as the Chinatown area has been mainly settled by the Cantonese people. Plenty of shops and restaurants as well
  • Good place to buy many stuffs like gift items.
  • Good place for culinary. The price is high for Indonesian.
  • Awesome place to find good foods with affordable price and so tasty. Many affordable souvenirs are available. Very nice place to visit especially at night.
  • 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.
