  • Full of people, houses, stores, fast food restaurants, at places - interesting architecture; Chinese lanterns all over. Well worth a visit to soak up in Far Eastern culture, though in Singapore everything is a little bit different ... When we visited, it was the Chinese New Year, so a lot of decorations were spread all over.
  • Good place for buying souvenir and having NON VEG Chinese food and other foods. Mainly Beef, pork, duck, various sea foods, etc. Buddha Tooth Relic is a good Buddhist temple in China town. Many shops are wholesale kind.
