  • One of the busiest stations that I have ever been to in SG. There are plenty of tourists going in and out of the different exits of the station. What's great about this place is that it has a lot of security and also information counters who are willing to point you to the place that you desire to visit.

  • Many many shops selling cheap tat. Some great food in the outdoor sections. I really enjoyed the temples.

  • Have to see this spot. As in other cities are Chinatowns also in Singapore is one of them. Chinese culture, typical food street and street shops what impressed you for sure. Especially if you visit China town during the Chinese New Year celebrations it just amazing. Do not miss this place.

  • The dt19 platform is very clean. There are no restrooms that I found, but it is connected to a mall that has restrooms. If you get off the subway train here, you will be in walking distance from the billion shops of Chinatown and several Buddhist temples. There is also a nice view from the street of several of the downtown buildings.

  • A very bustling area of Singapore, especially over weekends which is when we visited. Lots of stores mostly selling touristy stuff to jewelry and many, many eating places mostly selling Chinese. Some stores were selling at bargain prices enticing tourist by giving discounted rates for multiples of the same item. Part of a heritage area, with temples and close to other areas. It was given conservation status in July of 1989 and has four distinct sub-districts which forms part of the greater town (Da Po). Great for an afternoon walk or stroll.
