    Chinatown is a very interesting area within Singapore which is located around 48 Pagoda Street. This place is distinctly renowned for its heritage sites and large Chinese ethnic concentration spots. Read more

    Knick knacks that you want to bring to family and friends. Tintin shop is very expensive though. Too much choices, cheap things but make sure to check around as some stalls offer better items

    Located within the district of Outram in SG, this place is where you could see a great Chinese community. Don't miss Telok Ayer for the great Chinese temples and Smith Street for scrumptious food.

    Busy, crowded and somewhat dirty, but it's all part of its charm. You find here endless street shops, food stalls, hindu and buddha temples...a must see in Singapore

    It's weird for Chinese to visit here. But I was too desperate to buy fresh fruits in Singapore and Chinatown has all the fresh fruits with low prices. The neighborhood is also good for sightseeing.

    A great Chinatown. Hunt down where the locals eat and you won't regret it (although you may miss having air-conditioning).

    At times it can feel like Disney's idea of Chinatown, but that's just because it's so clean and colorful.

    One of the more authentic places to visit in Singapore, but also slowly losing its touch.

    Buy the souvenirs not on Pagoda Street but on nearby streets (Smith, Temple) if you want better deals

    Look for chopsticks that sell for SGD1.00 per pair. It's along Pagoda Street, with cute cartoons and even Chinese surnames.

    Typical street market. The food selection is pretty good. Any place offering chili/pepper crab is a good bet.
