There is always so much going on in Chinatown you will have a great time here. A good place to start is the markets selling an abundance of items at reduced prices that you might not find anywhere else. This includes Singapore memorabilia like hats, clothes, coffee mugs and more. The perfect place to get a present and do some bargain hunting. There are also some other cool products you can buy here from the many shops including watches, jewelry, bags, shoes and more. The markets are a real highlight of Chinatown and the main reason we recommend checking out Chinatown at all.
The other great thing about paying a visit to China Town is getting to try some great street food throughout this part of town and getting some Tiger beer at a seafood shop to cool off after a hot day sweating it out in the city. There are many coconut drinks available also which you should really try while you are in Chinatown. They are the most refreshing drinks you will ever try and are fairly cheap also. Good for health, refreshing and delicious what more can you want out of a drink? There are some great local restaurants around the Chinatown area ranging in price and quality. There are some lower end restaurants but these offer some great specials and its worth as try rather than just eating at the high end restaurants every single night you should venture out to one of the many delicious locally owned and run restaurants. These are the places that have “soul” and “heart” put into each and every single dish that is served.
There are a range of festivals and events always going on in China town make sure you visit the Chinatown homepage for more information because you don’t want to miss out on events like Chinese New Year, Food festivals, and art festivals that are often held in the area.
