There is an 18th Century Hindu temple here and a Buddhist temple. Visited the Hindu temple. There are lots of food stalls in pagoda street and other small shops selling souvenirs. Also there is a Chinese heritage place.

This is the heart of Chinatown. Good for food, stalls & most importantly the Buddhist temple. The temple is beautiful & don’t worry if you are not modestly dressed...they provide shawls & sarongs. The temple contains deities for year of your birth which was definitely...More

This is one of the touristy streets in the Chinatown area. The shop houses on both sides of the street are renovated and they look very interesting. You can find lots of shops selling souvenirs here.

I pass this street daily on weekdays, on my way to work. Nothing much to see, just some delivery vans unloading merchandise by the side. But it is so much different on weekends when the fun actually starts. You'll come across many tourists enjoying looking...More

Temple street is another of the four main tourist streets in Chinatown (along with Mosque street, Pagoda street and Smith street). There are a bunch of restored shophouses to look at. Best to visit in the late afternoon and avoid the heat of the day.
