There's nothing quite like exploring a neighbourhood on foot. Chinatown and CBD are popular with expats and locals alike and can be quite busy during weekdays and weeknights. There are tonnes of restaurants and bars here, catering to the hundreds of offices in the district. However, the real magic lies in the inner lanes and alleys of Chinatown. Displaying beautiful murals at unlikely places, it's a joy to walk around and discover them for yourself!

I began my second day by exploring Chinatown.
Chinatown is lined with colorful mom-and-pop tiny stores and stalls selling authentic Chinese food. It's a bustling district decorated with bright red lanterns. You can buy Chinese tea, medicines, silks, toys and souvenirs and a great many Chinese items at the colorful stalls. Chinatown is famous for its Sri Mariamman Hindu temple, the oldest temple in Singapore. Be sure to check out the Buddha Tooth Relic temple as well.
