One of the city’s most culturally rich enclaves is where the old world truly meets the new. Where else can you find kopitiams selling one dollar coffee located right next to the latest hip boutique hotel or chic rooftop bar? It is exactly this hodge-podge that lends Chinatown its authentic edge: From Club Street’s calculated coolness to the edgy (now somewhat cleaned-up) streets of Duxton, from the backstreet yet uptempo charms of Bukit Pasoh to the foodie and lifestyle haven in the Amoy/Telok Ayer vicinity—Chinatown promises unending surprise at every turn.
