          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.

          Do you accept late check-in? I will arrive in Changi airport at 11pm, so it's likely I won't make it to Matchbox until midnight.
