My kid is making noise wanted to go shopping, so we decided to bring him over to Chinatown. There is a walking street full of souvenir shops at great prices. Next to it, restaurants and hawker centers are convenience for tourists.

Just as I imagined, everything you could think of, a chance to barter, busy with people from all over and full of vibrant colours. Great place to visit.

Having been to several Chinatowns across the US, I must say Singapore's takes the cake. Not only is it large, its much cleaner and vibrant than those in the U.S. Great place to buy Singapore gifts to take home. Also plenty of places to eat. Free Wi-Fi also throughout Chinatown, however hard to log onto with no Singaporean phone number.

It was suggested we do the ChinaTown Tour - Tour East. We had a fantastic night out in China Town. It included a visit to Yong Gallery, dinner at a chinese restaurant, shopping time in China Town, a Trishaw ride to Clarke Quay, which was great fun, and a bumboat cruise along the Singapore River. The tour is good value... More
