NileGuide Expert Says:
One of the more fun and bustling parts of the city.
NileGuide Expert tip:
The market stalls are good for bargains, souvenirs and gifts.
- Although largely scarred by redevelopment, Chinatown today still contains pockets of genuinely old shophouses where age-old trades like clog-making and calligraphy continue to be practiced. Paper effigies of cars, houses and other material objects are still being made for the deceased. These are then burnt, in the belief that they will raise the standard of living of the deceased in the next world. For tea connoisseurs, a visit to a tea house is a must, not only to relish the flavor of Chinese tea, but also to experience the traditional art of tea-brewing.
