This section of road is covered with a glass canopy and easy to find. There are stalls selling mostly seafood down the centre of the... More

Just been there yesterday and patronised the usual Hokkien Noodle and Fried Oyster stalls but now the stalls are being man by workers and not the chefs. Really disappointed with food. I can't even help myself to finish the plate of Hokkien mee and also left 2 oysters on the other plate.

Located in Chinatown, this is an entire street block where they have replaced the normal center lane of cars with hawker stalls and seating, and then provided covered open-air roofing with fans. So one may comfortably walk up and down each side - no worries rain or shine - exploring the many various hawker stations offering a multitude of food... More

Variety of food is incredible. Everything looks and smells so good. Depending on what you want, you will surely find it at this place. Prices are very reasonable. Very crowded but nevertheless it is a must to see and appreciate in Singapore.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
