“Busy and lively ...love it here”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

Stroll along Pagoda street, very lively and really enjoy the atmosphere. Souvenir sold here is very price consistent, you almost find the same prices in every stall, which is good. Had a quick half hour foot massage which costs SGD18. But the restaurant along this street can be pricey, for 2 persons, 2 types of dishes, rice n drinks costs SGD42. Weather can be hot if you choose to come in the morning, went to OG department store for air con and more shopping.

“Ambience, shopping, good food”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

Relaxing in Chinatown over a beer is great. Lots of nick-nack shopping. Great food ranging from western prices to $3 meals at the hawker's markets. Always busy and fun to visit.
