Chinatown Heritage centre is where you can get the glimpse of the dragon country in Singapore. Nestled within the walls of three restored shop-houses on Pagoda Street, Chinatown Heritage Centre is located in the Chinatown district of Singapore.
The striking interiors are recreated to match the interiors of the migrants that stayed in the shop-houses as tenants in 1950’s. This centre will offer you a time machine to peek into the lives of Chinatown early residents!

Absolutely stunning exhibition. With the audio guide makes you believe you have travelled back in time. Takes a long time to go through but it is well worths it. Also gives a lot of hints what else to do in town.
Another air-conditioned haven from Singapore heat. This center takes you though history of Chinatown with a mockup of a shop-house from days gone by. It was quiet freaky to the space that a family of eight would live in, which by modern standards would be about the size of the average bathroom. There is an audio guide supplied with your entrance ticket but I found it to be too long, the commentary for each stop were at least 4-8 minutes long and over 30 stops in the display.
Brought students here for learning journey and was pleasantly surprised by the renovated museum. I am particularly impressed by the display of sleeping quarters of people working different jobs in the early days. Much effort has been devoted to replicate the living environment of our forefathers who earned a hard living doing various odd jobs. The admission ticket is not cheap but it is not going to be a disappointment. I think it is worth a visit.
Very good place to find some Singaporean souvenirs with cheap price. Start from 1 sing dollar to max 10 sing dollar max. Some merchants allows you to bargain. If you are quite sensitive with the sun heats, always use the sun-screen, bring umbrella or hat and some water, because at noon the temperature could raise till 40 celcius.
The temple is very nice from inside. Very calm and peaceful. You can borrow cloth from the temple to cover yourself if you are planning to wear shorts or sleeveless clothes.
