    Chinatown

    by antistar Written Apr 6, 2015

    With its heart on the edge of Singapore's business district, Chinatown is especially evocative of the city's origins. Chinatown's colourful 19th century buildings lining the streets under the cloud scraping towers of glass and steel make for a stunning juxtaposition. As you wander Chinatown you can enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of traditional restaurants and shops, as well as wandering markets and seeing old men playing Xiangqi in the shadow of the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple.

    Go shopping in China town

    by xtephen Written May 4, 2005

    I never thought I would give such an endorsement, but I definetly recommend shopping in China town. I typically dislike shopping, but I thouroughly enjoyed shopping there. I picked up several silk shirts, a kimono for my gf & mother, & some other good stuff.

    The food I ate there was excellent. Beer was pretty good too ;)

    Singapore's oldest and largest Chinese temple. This temple used to sit at the waterfront before land reclamation pushed it a few blocks inland.

    Chinatown was the best for shopping and eating, much cheaper than anywhere else and not as touristy and expensive as Orchard Road.

    At night it is all lit up and looks so pretty.

    Chinatown has some good markets, and like Little India, it's a great place to wander around and have a look.

    Lots of shops selling local and traditional wares, crafts, and foodstuffs. A lovely afternoon can be spent wandering through the street of Chinatown in Singapore.
