Chinatown features hundreds of choices of restaurants and a myriad of after-dining attractions in this popular night spot. Just a short drive from Shenton Way, the financial centre, Chinatown and the fashionable Orchard Road shopping belt is a magnet for those seeking the allure of the night. Chinatown can be divided into four main districts - Kreta Ayer, Telok ... More>Ayer, Tanjong Pagar and Bukit Pasoh - each with its own distinctive flavour. The heart of activity is in the Trengganu/Smith Streets area. Nearby Riverside, on the north bank of the river, is where Raffles originally landed and founded his colony, and to this day many central government buildings can be found in the area.
