Not far from Chinatown.

An interesting, varied Street not far from Chinatown. A number of eating options and bars. Worth a visit.

Went by Telok Ayer Street - the area has been nicely done up with lots of new eating houses, restaurants and pubs.

Not really worth it. Best to spend time at Chinatown or at Perankan place if the interest is in old shophouses.

A lot of local delights. Many choices and stalls which still offer traditional delights.

Interesting area of old buildings that is worth walking around for local flavor. I found a guide map for tourists from the government that gave some detail about particular buildings.
