“very interesting for sure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

there were so much to see, to buy, to eat.. i love the visitor centre near the buddha relic temple. and also a not-so-wide park with a pagoda on the overpass. the colonial architecture is well-preserved with many different colour paint.

“Great Singapore Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

If you want to try the local delicacies, this is the place to be. All sorts of Chinese food to be found within the streets. The buildings also have a lot of historical value behind it. Be sure to check out the crowd during Chinese New Year. Stalls line the small streets. Streams of people walk down the streets purchasing new year goodies. Get the festive season in the mood!
