Singapore Travel: Shopping in Chinatown

After our Trip to the Universal Studio we visited Singapore’s Chinatown to buy some Pasalubong and souvenirs.The Singapore’s China Town is an ethnic neighbourhood featuring distinctly Chinese cultural elements and a historically concentrated ethnic Chinese population. Chinatown is located within the larger district of Outram.

Chinatown  is a subzone and ethnic enclave located within the Outramdistrict in the Central Area of Singapore. Featuring distinctly Chinese cultural elements, Chinatown has had a historically concentrated ethnic Chinese population.

Chinese is the largest ethnic group in Singapore.Hence, Chinatown is considerably less of an enclave than it once was. However, the precinct does retain significant historical and cultural significance. Large sections of it have been declared national heritage sites officially designated for conservation by the Urban Redevelopment Authority.

Chinatown is great fun especially if you are  shopping casually for junky souvenirs. I just bought few souvenir items for fear of excess baggage. Just like in any other souvenir alleys, you can bargain for prices.

I was very excited browsing the shops at Chinatown in Singapore. In fact I god some small items which I brought home as souvenirs and giveaways for my family and friends.

The street architecture of Chinatown’s buildings especially the shops, combine different elements of baroque architecture andVictorian architecture and do not have a single classification.

The color and full-go sense onslaught begins right as you get off the MRT train. The traditional shop houses have been painted in a riot of bright colors, and the pavements are clean  … just wandering around is great fun.
