6. Chinatown

Chinatown is another Singapore icon; great for shopping (many swear by it as the cheapest souvenirs location in town.), to see all kind of important attractions and trying out authentic Chinese food. There are countless restaurants and hawker food vendors to choose from. Learn more about its history from the Chinatown Heritage Centre on Pagoda Street. Its main focus is on the Chinese immigrants who lived a hard life and were the main group of people who founded Singapore.
