The best thing about Chinatown is The Maxwell food centre beat hainanese chicken. We bought some sweet dresses for the girls and a few souvenirs but the food bought us back the next day.

Put on your walking shoes and have your camera at the ready... The obvious points of interest in Chinatown are Sri Mariamman Temple (check out the statuary!) and the Buddha Tooth Temple (beautiful gold statues in their 100's downstairs and the relic upstairs), but you...More

This place is amazing to buy gift items as sovenier and also for antiques / ancient items s well which I explored very recently. Don't forget to bargain in antique shops. You need to really try for bargaining skills

It is worth a visit to look at the old houses which have been well maintained and visit a couple of the temples. However, it is now full of tourist shops which spoil the effect of the old houses.

Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.
