Singapore’s own Chinatown is a real treat. of course the most discerning of travelers may find their souvenirs in adorable little specialty shops in whatever part of town they stay in. Yet, Chinatown should not be overlooked as it is the hub for one of a kind niche oddities.
Amidst the grimey street stalls, there’s a clean, polished, well lit Tin Tin store, and there are calligraphy artists galore. I discovered a music store that sold old timey 1960s Chinese music (perfect for a family gift) and zodiac calendars. Sure, you can get run of the mill bag tags and tacky shirts, but this Chinatown seems a lot more curated than that.
Go for a shopping trip!
