Chinatown Featured in The Ultimate Guide to Singapore
We all know what an exciting destination Singapore is, and can understand why so many people travel from around the world to come here. After all, in Singapore there is so much to see and do. Those of us living here know all about this great city’s many fine restaurants, the historical locations, and world famous attractions. But with the vast number of things on offer, it can be difficult for people in other parts of the world to know just what they should be seeing and doing when they visit us.

This is why travel experts Jetline Cruise have assembled an ultimate guide to Singapore, and we are very happy that they decided to include Chinatown as a must visit destination while in Singapore! Jetline Cruise reached out to us and asked us for our own tips on what to see and do in Chinatown, which have been included in the article. It was great to be involved in the piece and tell the world about what makes Singapore’s Chinatown such a special location.
