Singapore’s Chinatown has come a long way since the early days when Chinese immigrants made this enclave their home. Filled with a sprawling myriad of shops and eateries, bustling with colourful and exciting activities set against a backdrop of rich history and heritage, Chinatown is not to be missed, especially in the evening when everything really comes alive. At Yong Gallery, the fine art of calligraphy is demonstrated by a Master Calligrapher who converts your name or a creative expression into auspicious Chinese characters on a red fan which is yours to keep as a souvenir. After dinner at a local Chinese restaurant, wander along the narrow lanes of the Night Market and test your bargaining skills with street vendors selling anything from souvenirs to leather goods. The highlight of the evening is a trishaw ride that takes you through the alleyways of Chinatown and down to Clarke Quay. There, hop onto a bumboat for a cruise along the Singapore River to see Singapore lit up at night, showcasing beautifully restored shop houses, modern skyscrapers of the financial district, colonial buildings and the iconic Merlion statue.
