It is a street that probably brought back alot of memories for the older generations in Singapore.
The structures of the building remained as those back in 1960s with quiet lanes that will bring you back to the old Singapore.
Some old and budgeted hotels can still be found along this road for multi-purposes from budget stay for travellers to hourly rent rooms for people.
Traditional temple could also be found with very ancient way of praying methods for the blessings for oneself and the family.
One can also take a rest at one of the coffeeshop along this road and listen to the daily conversation and observe the lifestyle of the typical Singaporeans.
This is a road which I would recommend if you would like to see the more untouched and laid-back of Singapore.
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 ;)
it was very nice to walk around, shop little things and had a small snack (very cheap!)
its worth to visit and easy to get around by Metro or Taxi
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.
Extraordinary. Still can feel the smell... Aaah :)
Anyway, prices: little frogs 3$10, medium frogs $4, big frogs $7.
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.
China town was great except for the rain...not sure if it was just our timing but it always seems to rain
Chinatown = A lot of Chinese people + 1 town.
All chinese food, chinese goods, chinese music, chinese tea and chinese tradition and culture is available here.
