Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
The Chinatwon Heritage Centre is a history lesson that tells you the story of how the early Chinese settlers came to Singapore and put their stamp on creating Chinatwon.
It is located on Pagoda Street. The building is beautiful and the facade is spread across three shop fronts. Inside, you can see how the early settlers lived.
Admission is SGD...

Maxwell Food Centre is a few meters from our hotel. The place is clean and the ventilation is just alright. Almost all Asian cuisines are being offered. Chicken rice is very popular. The prices are reasonable and affordable.
This is the oldest Hindu temple in Singapore in the heart of Chinatown. It is very much a tourist attraction and one must wear proper clothing and you must take off your shoes before entering-[you can keep your socks on] I was a little concerned about coming out of the temple and my shoes having disappeared but everyone else was...
Another example of Islamic Indian architecture in Singapore, this time in the heart of Chinatown, right beside Hindu, Chinese and Buddhist temples, as well as a church! This green mosque standing tall with its 2 minarets at the entrance is also a national monument of Singapore though it is so simple and modest in shape. It is not much but...
Our 6 course degustation dinner with paired wines was comparable to some of the best rated restaurants in the world. Each course was carefully matched in flavors and beautifully presented. Service was impeccable. The very open kitchen leaves no room for error. Some courses are served by the head chef providing a unique opportunity to engage should you wish. Thank...
This is the first time to the new location. Bigger and spacious, but still cozy. The Irish Oysters is my priority when visit Meta. Just love it so much! Big and juicy but not cloying. Together with the set lunch, a perfect supplement.
My husband and I had dinner at Rhubarb for his birthday. I wanted to try it because of the good reviews and their Michelin star rating. I was expecting the food to be nice but nothing overly special. But I was wrong. The food was nice in a non flashy way. I like the way they are done simply but...
Menu changes every 2 months and our recent dinner for the 5 course set was incredibly good. Owner chef Andrew Walsh and his team do not miss anything in delivering excellent food and service all round. The amuse bouches were a delight to look at and eat and these little 'gifts' from the chef just kept on appearing. It is...
One of the better concepts I’ve come across where you can try cocktail flavours before hand by trying the gummy bears of each type of cocktail on the menu.
Cocktails were served in quirky ways, clearly a very well thought out menu. We didn’t eat but were told food here is awesome.
Went on a Thursday night and the place...
Great front desk staff made us feel welcome as soon as we walked in. Nothing too much trouble. Nice rooms and decor. A little noisy at times but no more than any other central city location. Close to amazing local food spots, can walk to anywhere. Chinatown only 2 minutes walk away. Loved our stay here.
Hotel is directly at the China Town subway station.
Take exit E instead of the Upper Cross Road direction, than you just need to cross the street for the entrance of the hotel.
Very comfortable bed.
Only minus point is the lack of storage space. No cabinet at all.
Second time at the Duxton and will be coming back and making it my base hotel in Singapore. The whole experience makes it a great option for weary travellers. Fit out, furnishings, and service is excellent. Makes you feel like you are in the old Singapore. Excellent value for money when compared tot he big hotel chains for business.

The location of the hotel is conveniently located steps from Chinatown where a lot of the places I wanted to eat were, and less than 10 minutes walk to a couple of the subway lines which made it easy to explore the rest of Singapore. The hotel itself was undergoing a lot of renovations from what I could tell including...
A somewhat quirky hotel (shower in the middle of the bathroom) is an excellent find. Location is close to major sites and the tube is just minutes away. Bar downstairs offers nice midnight drinks. Great bed, ac, and warm and friendly staff. Great value for Singapore. Would definitely stay here again and would easily recommend to others.
