Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice at Maxewell Food Center is absolutely the best in Singapore by far you simply have to try it, oddly its not touristy at all despite being next to Chinatown. It's where I go everytime I'm in town

Hacker food small stalls communal eating but sensational food at great prices. Wish we had found this earlier. I remember Newtons circus from the early 1980s, now a tourist trap. This is the next best thing

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.
