A little too touristy, even on weekdays, for my liking. Worth a quick stroll as you explore Chinatown but don't expect anything too special.

Typical Chinese pedestrian street that can be found anywhere in the world with a large concentration of Chinese residents. Consisting of various eateries, as well as numerous stalls and shops selling trinkets and other touristy items. It is interesting for its architecture and colourful atmosphere as well as the sights, sounds and above all the smells of a market. Close... More

This is a normal street that has the usual stalls selling Chinese souvenirs. It is next to the Buddha Tooth Relic, so it is quite busy. It is easily forgettable and nothing special.

Came here mid-day after having lunch across the street at the Maxwell Hawker Center. As with the rest of (this part of) Chinatown, it is packed end to end with souvenir stalls selling all kinds of cheap tchotchkes. There were some items like bracelets and bags that seemed to sell for a little less than other stalls two blocks over... More

A nice street where they sell fruit and different stuff. You will get away from the car noise and it is quite picturesque.

This is a street in China Town area near to the Buddha Relic temple.All shops mostly sell the same stuff comprising of sovereigns , lights, t-shirts, dresses for ladies, watches, perfumes. Price wise it is less compared to other areas. Good for a one time visit ! Reachable by NE MRT line - China Town station.

Sago street located in the heart of Chinatown, very close to a Buddhist temple, one of the most beautiful and fascinating in the whole city. Is one of the many access points to Chinatown, very picturesque and choreographic, at first impression I was impressed by the many colours which accompany this road, with its terraced houses, to the countless stalls,...

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
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.
