Singapore Trip: Chinatown

Chinatown has been known to tourists not only for the souvenir items that can be bought here at an affordable price. This place shows how the Chinese community was able to retain their history and culture which became significant to other tourists visiting the place.

We rode a double-decker bus in going to Chinatown. As we got-off the bus, we headed to Pagoda Street and looked for something that we can buy. Hubby won’t go back to the Philippines without a coffee mug of Singapore. 😀 To tell you honestly, all the items there are expensive. In fact, you can even buy some of those items in Divisoria which are a lot cheaper pa! But if you were really looking for some items as pasalubong to your family and friends, go to Trengganu Street (connects Smith Street, Temple Street and Pagoda Street) and look for the store that sells cheap keychains in bulk. If you get hungry, that wouldn’t be a problem. There are many hawker food centers that can be found in the area.

Along Pagoda Street, we saw the ice cream vendor selling the ice cream that we were dying to taste. Are you familiar with that logo? Yup, it’s the same logo of Selecta ice cream but it’s Wall’s in Singapore even in Malaysia. 😉 Ice cream can be bought in a rainbow sandwich but we preferred wafer. xoxo. It’s being sold for $1 (P34), quite expensive but it tastes good! If only I was not suffering from cough, I would buy another one. Lol!
