“busy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

We saw most of chinatown via the hop on bus but found the buildings etc great. Did do some of the shops on the outskirts. Always find these places interesting and this didn't disappoint, nice atmosphere.

“Enjoyable, with a treat in the middle!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

I was quite stunned when I came out of the Pagoda Street exit of CHINATOWN SRT station. Up the escalator and immediately into a Chinese market street, full of stalls and bustle. WOW!
I enjoyed strolling around the stalls in the equatorial heat and not being pestered by hawkers. Many of the stalls had 'tat' but many also had genuine Chinese wares.
Suddenly, I would happen upon an exotic religious building dotted about throughout the neighbourhood and then...
The foot spa on Temple Street. A magic treat.

“A lot Local food stall with reasonable price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

You should try the food court next to OG dept store. they have quite variety of foods that taste very nice and the price very reasonable. You should try Kho kee fishball noodle, chasiu noodle and tan tat cakes. In front of People Park, they also have alot of snack stores. its worth to try.

“OK but not brilliant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

We enjoyed a stroll around Chinatown, but like most it's a bit jaded and we were not tempted to eat there.
