  • Chinatown in Singapore is exactly what one would expect of a Chinatown in Singapore….loud, busy, interesting, overwhelming. Definitely worth the visit.

  • Typical China Town experience. Temple is must to visit, followed by hawker center and shopping. You can purchase souvenirs for friends and family.

  • Visited Chinatown at night to feel the Mid-Autumn Festival atmosphere. The streets are well decorated and the decorations look great! Chinatown is packed with many nice food stalls and has many oriental products. Instead of getting products online, you can purchase many of these items at physical stores, which decreases the waiting time during shipment. The streets can get quite crowded during festive seasons but during these festivities and it can get quite exciting!
  • Nice area to explore in the center of the city. Just opposite Chinatown MRT. Plenty of things to do around here. Maxwell food center is a great start for food lovers. Highly recommend the rojak local dish. The temple is huge and nice to visit too. Chinatown street market is filled with shops and restaurants too. Good for shopping especially for Singapore souvenirs. China point and People park shopping mall nearby too.
