Chinatown

Chinatown is the center of the Chinese community in Singapore, a legacy of the first Chinese settlers who lived in Singapore.

Singapore's Chinatown emerged in 1821 when the first junco from Xiamen arrived at the port. The passengers, all men, settled in the southern part of the Singapore River, now known as Telok Ayer.

Like the rest of Singapore, Chinatown also stands out for its cultural mix. In very few cities it is possible to see two Arab mosques and a Hindu temple in the heart of Chinatown.

Chinatown can be divided into four small districts and is delimited by Chuch St, New Bridge Rd., Maxwell Rd. And Cecil St.
What to see in Chinatown

In Chinatown you will find Chinatown Heritage Center, a three-story museum that tells the story of the early Chinese settlers.

In addition to the museum, do not miss Al Abrar Mosque (Telok Ayer Street), the Jamae Mosque and the Sri Mariamman Hindu Temple (South Bridge Road). Do not miss out on the clothing and handicraft shops, where you will find articles that will want to get into the suitcase.

Sri Mariamman was built in 1827 and became the first Hindu temple in Singapore.

As in any Chinese neighborhood that boasts, if there is a business that stands apart from the shops, are the Chinese restaurants. The prices are very cheap and the quality of the food quite good.
