Chinatowns are found in many cities around the world, but Singapore’s very own stands out. Initially established as an enclave for the city's early Chinese settlers, it’s since developed into a bustling neighbourhood that melds the old and new.
From historical architecture to quaint shops and colourful murals, Chinatown offers much to see and do. This extends to Singapore’s national pastime of obsessing over good food, of course—the neighbourhood has a vibrant dining and bar scene, and is home to various Michelin-starred restaurants and World’s and Asia’s Best Restaurants and Bars. With myriad options available, picking one—or even a few—could be a challenge. With the help of restaurateur and hotelier (and avid foodie) Loh Lik Peng, we've picked four top choices to get you started, whether you live in Singapore or are a tourist visiting as the country reopens its borders.
