Singapore Chinatown

Singapore Chinatown, which is situated in the district of Outram, is an ethnic neighborhood that highlights elements and traditions that are historically relevant to the Chinese population. The history of this area can be traced as far back as 14th century when new immigrants – mostly, though not entirely from China – utilized this spot for sleeping and dining, while they were working on the nearby shores of Singapore River. As the working Chinese were concentrated here, the English captains of the commercial industry referred to the area as Chinatown, and for generations, the name has stuck.

Nowadays, Singapore’s Chinatown is one of the leading tourist destinations in the entire city-state. This is where visitors can take a quick stroll and be able to experience the Chinese roots of Singapore at its best. The neighborhood is defined by a combination of various elements of Baroque and Victorian architecture and walking down this street will transport visitors back in time. In between the temples and parks are restaurants, shops, and various street-stalls that sell trinkets related to Chinese culture.
