Singapore Chinatown/Ann Siang Hill Neighbourhood Guide

This area of Singapore is our favourite to stay in. It's full of pretty streets with multi-coloured shophouses, great restaurants and nightlife along Ann Siang Hill/Club Street. It's also home to one Singapore's best hawker centres for great street food and interesting streets to wander, and it's a short walk to Marina Bay. And despite its name it's far more than just a China Town, it's a melty pot of different religions and historical roots.
