"Walk Around Chinatown" Chinatown Tip by litekimchi

Chinatown, Singapore: 58 reviews and 119 photos


Unfortunately, Chinatown has become a tourist trap, especially the market streets (Pagoda, Smith, Trengganu and Smith). But you can still catch glimpses in small mom-and-pop stores around.

Too bad I didn't get to walk around past the street markets. But next time, I'll make sure I'll find other pockets of Chinatown and take pictures of restored old shophouses. And eat more yang tau foo!

Directions: A short walk from Outram Park/Chinatown MRT Station

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
