By James V Cook

Chinatown in Singapore is place that you will absolutely fall in love with as this amazing part of the city is active more often than not. This area of the country was formed after many Chinese people flocked to Singapore's shores soon after the early 1800's. As this section of the local community grew in number the area too developed significantly over the years and is currently one of the busiest shopping, dining and entertainment areas of Singapore.

The distinctively rich architectural styles of the buildings that can be seen in Chinatown is very much a part of its character and is an attraction in its own right as most of the older buildings are well designed. Chinatown is also one of the best places to shop in Singapore. Everything from jade jewellery to fine clothing and precious antiques to cutting edge electronic gadgets can be found here.
