“Best souvenir shopping”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

Amazing range and prices - got some fantastic clothing bargains here too. The place to go for souvenirs. My only advice is to come and have a look and then come back and do your shopping. The range and number of shops is a bit overwhelming

“Great food”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

My Favourite place in Singapore. As someone who has previously lived in China for over 10 years, Chinatown captures the spirit of "lao zhong guo". Lots of street snacks. Head over to People's plaza if you want a massage by an experienced reflexologist. Electronics, travel agents, and stores selling food and knick knacks. There's something for everyone.

“Worth the walk”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

I wouldn't buy anything here, except if I knew the product and the vendor very well. It's just the atmosphere in this bustling area of Singapore. And the many, many food shops: what a culture!

“Buzzy and worth a visit”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

I enjoy the Singapore Chinatown for quite a different mix of shops, outlets and many food choices. Nice place to get a foot massage and wander round.
