Chinatown Street Market
Great deals and ever better eats
What we say:
Cheongsams, T-shirts, cameras, tea and dubious antiques: the sidestreets of Chinatown overflow with opportunities to spend your Sing-dollars.
Many shops sell exactly the same goods and the quality is so-so, but the price is always right. Small souvenirs like magnets are 5 for $5 and you can get a "real silk" robe for under $10.
The food stalls are almost as innumerable as the shops and it's a great opportunity to try Chinatown favourites like dim sum and bak kwa (sweet pork jerky).
The market is bustling with activity from morning to night and explodes with decorations in the months leading up to Chinese New Year.
