Singapore's Chinatown is one of its most famous and popular districts. Technically located in the Outram area, it has a character and atmosphere all its own, and a fascinating history. Apparently dating back almost a thousand years, the Chinese community was organised into a kampung by the British in the 19th century. After that, different neighbourhoods developed, with Hokkien, Teochew and Cantonese communities spread across the area. And where these groups settled, they brought fantastic restaurants. Nowadays Chinatown is a superb dining destination, offering great cuisine from all over China.
