If you’re looking for a place of rich historical and cultural value, Chinatown is just the place for you! A bustling place full of life and colour, Chinatown is well-known for their vibrant shophouses and eclectic historical landmarks that cater to various cultures and backgrounds.
From tiny knick-knacks and waving cat ornaments to intricate lacquerware and traditional hand painted fans, Chinatown Street Market is the perfect place for purchasing kitschy but memorable souvenirs to bring back! With a diverse range of street food carts parked alongside other stalls, feel free to grab a quick bite while hunting for your various souvenirs. Chinatown also homes multiple cultural gems such as the Sri Mariamman Temple, Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Thian Hock Keng Temple, which is known to be one of Singapore’s oldest temples standing. A great place for shopping, indulging in delicious traditional delicacies and visiting iconic historic buildings, Chinatown is the perfect place for tourists who are looking for an authentic cultural experience.
This historical treasure is located 4.1km away from our hotel and will only take a 10 minute drive to get there. A trip to Chinatown is equally as convenient by train as one stop from Harbourfront MRT via the (purple) North East line will bring you to the Chinatown train station.
