Chinatown Heritage Centre

The exhibits start with the dangerous journey across the South China Sea then describe life in the then-British colony with furniture, clothing and tools from the time.

No topic is off-limits and a whole gallery is dedicated to former social vices like prostitution and opium addiction.

The attached Chinatown Heritage Restaurant serves classics like chicken rice and chilli crab and the antiques from the gift shop are of higher quality than you'll find in the street market.
