The food stall street was light and airy, has interesting seafood eg fried oysters (delicious) and consumer friendly seating and clearing of plates. This is well organised and is a most interesting way to spend an evening.

Have seen many China Town in Asia. I would grade this as the best China town in Asia. It is clean and really beautiful and very big. Everytime I visit Singapore, this is definitely a place I will not miss . Reasonable pricing for the food and souveniors on sale in China Town. Love it.

Fantastic place to visit at night. We saw it during the day and then that night and it comes alive at night, plenty of food options all fresh cooked in front of you. Sit down and share a meal together and enjoy the atmosphere!

I suppose I am spoiled as I have seen many Chinatowns around the world. This one is fine lots of shops, we purchased some bone knives and bits and bobs. There were many many people which made getting into the shops and seeing what was on the other side of the road difficult but it is great for people watching.... More

If you have been to other Chinatowns before, this one won't be much different. However, it's still worth a visit! There is great food (with awesome prices) and lots of tourist shopping. It's also fairly clean for a China market. I suggest visiting along with Clarke Quay since they are walkable distances.

Persevere with the the humidity and compare prices. Tony's Fashions on South Bridge Road charged Singapore $187.00 for Batik Kaftans, even though I purchased 4 of them. While Happy Harry's Shop, further down the street quoted Singapore $135.00 for one similar garment. Happy Harry's has a website: www.happyharrytailor.com.sg and has a far greater selection of fabrics than Tony's Fashions. So... More

Full of history and culture. The buddhist temple is wonderful, as are the quaint stalls, streets, cafes, etc. in the area. Well worth spending a morning/afternoon.
