This was just another Chinatown. Have you seen it in one city, you have seen this also. However, if you are buying something be sure to check the prices. They fluctuates.

Thankfully it wasn't as busy as some areas of this soulless city. Where have all the real places gone? This is it now. A reasonable place to buy tacky souvenirs, a fairly decent area to look at the facades of the buildings. Some of it really is rather quaint but I fear the area will diminish over the next few...

The place is similar to what i have seen in china. shopping, eating, people from various countries experience Chinese cuisine. the best thing is the dinning out along side the streets. The place was full of lights and lots ans lots of eating outlets from restaurants to stalls.

Ideally you should start the tour from the Indian temple and then enter the street next to it... keep walking, browsing the various shops and sampling the street food delights... Don't miss the roast duck stall in the street food market!

The cleanest chinatown I have ever seen. No fake stuff. Only souvenir and chinese handcrafts. But nice place to visit to take pictures and eat chinese.

One of the most overlooked places to visit from a Tourist perspective. Most of the Indian tourists I know who come to Singapore go & to Mustafa for some odd reason! That's like visiting New York & heading to WalMart first! Chinatown is a treasure chest of odd buys, amazing food & just a quaint back neighbourhood feel with a... More

For visitors this is a must visit part of Singapore. We lived here for 6 months and had a wonderful time getting to know all the options for food....one of my favourites is the Chinatown Seafood cafe - its the one with the yellow chairs along Pagoda Street as you exit the MRT. Great Black Pepper Crab (ask for a... More

This is the best place for tourists to shop. The chinatown market starts through one of the exit of chinatown MRT, which has a wide variety of souvenirs, gift items, clothing, chocolates, jewellery for ladies and lots more in a quite good rate. Almost all shops have deals like 3 for $10 OR 4 for $10 OR 5 for $10... More

It's located in central of city so get easy to go everywhere by Mrt or bus. There are many food courts, markets, shopping mall and attractions. The food is cheap, everything is ok. U can walk to Clark Quay and Boat Quay, no need take a bus or Mrt , it's close and very convenient. U should to stay there!
