Pagoda St, Singapore
This pedestrian street forms the heart of busy tourist Chinatown. You'll be surrounded by beautifully preserved traditional shophouses, overflowing with shops selling cheap clothing and souvenirs. There's nearly always a buzz here, as tourists and locals browse the shops looking for a bargain. Keep a look out for silk cushion covers, traditional Chinese clothing, silk fans and paintings. In some of the more upmarket shops, you'll find beautiful lacquerware, silk lamps, furniture and antiques. You'll probably be stopped by touts selling massages or offering to measure you up for a tailor-made suit along the way. It's all part of the fun!
