Chinatown market is well worth a visit for purchasing silk items, lovely fans and tea sets. Lot of toot as well but worth sorting through. lots of stalls. you will get stall holders calling out to you but they don't persist if you ignore them or say no thanks.

Lots of shops to find cheaper tourists bargains than Orchard Road. It also has a lot of history. There is a museum there about the area.

Chinatown is really nothing more than a string of cheap souvenir shops. Arab St and Little India are way more interesting.

Very pleasant to go look around and buy souvenirs there (I don't like doing hassle so I don't know if you can do it there or not).. If you have time, go visit Masjid Jamek and Sri Mahariamman Temple, two religious building located at the end of the Pagoda Street (MRT Chinatown Exit A).. You can also stop by at... More

Chinatown is essentially attack the heart of Singapore. Stroll here and takes in the sights, sounds and smells of the city. There are a host of street vendors and plenty of restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here.

The smells, colors, nice people, interesting buildings, authentic restaurants, markets with small shops that sells almost everything makes this quarter of Singapore one of the must see attractions. Wander the streets there, sit in a local restaurant to relax with a cold beer and watch the people passing by. Just go to the "Chinatown" MRT station and you are there...... More

Great food at the hawkers markets and not far from the station. Its a big town so be sure to walk straight through before you find a place to eat because some of the outer eating spots are not as good.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
