People's Park Complex is both a commercial and residential property. The commercial and residential blocks were completed in 1970 and 1973 respectively. The 31-floor high-rise building is on a 1 hectare land located at the heart of Chinatown. The commercial space is used for office rental and sale.

Standing tall at 103 metres in height, People's Park Complex building was the first shopping centre of its kind in entire Southeast Asia and the largest shopping complex in the commercial belt along New Bridge Road and Eu Tong Sen Street. It formed the basis and pattern for subsequent retail developments in Singapore.

Being at the centre of Chinatown area, there are many shops selling Chinese items. Among other items, people throng the Complex for souvenirs, food, fabrics, and other things that strike their fancy. The food stalls are affordable to people to eat to their hearts’ content.

Nearby to the People's Park Complex are Cold Storage China Square, Coleurs Pte Ltd, China Square Central, and Central Mall for amenities like grocery, retail shopping, banks, etc. There are eateries that are worth visiting very close to the Complex, which are Kopitiam (South Bridge Court), Morning Star Food Court, and 189 New Bridge Road.

Nearest schools to the Centre are Columbia Business School, AusEd-UniEd Singapore Pte. Ltd., Outram Secondary School, Asia Pacific School of Business, and Singapore Management University.

Apart from shopping at People's Park Complex for products, going there to view the monument could be very gratifying especially for tourists as they pick up souvenirs of their choice.

  • This is the place to go for cheap, authentic Chinese food. Most of the dishes are from northern and central China so they tend to be spicy. Huge quantities and selection of soups as well as stir fries...  more »
  • Very close to Chinatown station. Because it is not wet almost in the rain, it is convenient at the time of Squall. There is a lot of massage. Cheap.

  • Disappointed with the food and service provided. Hard sausage muffin and unfriendly staff. Evem regular customers also cannot remember or recognise to greet with a friendly gesture. This is the outlet...  more »

  • A very recommended visit. It reminds me a mix of traditional Chinese and modern culture. Lot of shopping option available. Oh yeah, you would also get some and very few remaining street cobblers here. They are master in their own job.
  • This place was built in the 1960s/70s. But it is still a great tourist attraction in what I would call "organised chaos". Sometimes Singapore is so neat and clean - you need some places like this to make our country more vibrant 😀
  • Another place to sense the local culture. Although mostly are people from China but many elderly Singaporean hang out around this complex. You will expect some traditional shops and many jewellery shops. The only issue I had was the strong medical smell.
  • Come here for cheap groceries. Surprised how good the chinese food here tasted, mainly the stalls outside the mall. If you plan to travel you can also check out the travel agencies in the mall, price is extremely competitive due to the high volume of agencies located in the small mall.
  • Be selective of where you go. I had one of the best massages of my life and didn't expect it. S$48 second floor Purple shirts. Rest of place is dodgy but less for tourists. Worth a visit
