Chinatown, Singapore Reviews - Write a Review
Singapore Chinatown ~ A fascinating iconic area where trade bartering places of worship could be traced back to the colonial time. Beautiful buildings of old that were well preserved eagerly waiting for visitors to explore and discover a page in the past. Lots of things to see, delicious food to sample and knick knacks to buy. A haven where all your senses are engaged. Good to visit in the evening where it is cooler. Best times to soak in the atmosphere are Chinese lunar new year during January/February and September/October in celebration of the mid autumn festival.
I love Chinatown in the night. This area became more attractive with those sparkling lamps along the roads. I went to Chinatown Singapore twice and this is my favorite place in Singapore. So relaxing for foods hunt or shopping.
Fabulous. The true essence of the Orient. Beautifully maintained old buildings, dozens of well priced stalls, cafe & attractions. Everyone speaks good English & the area is clean and well maintained. A place not to be missed.
Entire MRT network in Singapore is simply great. Other government's should learn to adopt. It is only way forward to reduce noice, dust .. pollution
I went on Sunday and it's so beautiful to go there in the evening, it's usually crowded but you can walk around, it has everything you need to get to know a little bit of China, clothes, souvenirs, bags, make up, accessories, China crafts, typical Chinese food (the thing is that you have to understand a little Chinese cause there's no English translation in the traditional food area and they will call you in every ways they can to buy in their restaurant, they insist), but its all for a very good price, and still has some local things from Singapore, and it's safe, but I believe that safety it's something basic in Singapore, and I love it!
