Touring Singapore – Chinatown and Esplanade

I toured Chinatown and Esplanade on a Tuesday but if you were to tour Chinatown on a Saturday, you might want to consider my Saturday Itinerary.

In my case, I didn’t go for the ‘Footprints of our Forefathers’ free tour and did not eat at the Chinatown Complex/Maxwell Road Hawker Centre. I also didn’t tour the entire Chinatown as I also wanted to visit Esplanade Library to study.

Some information about ‘Footprints of our Forefathers’:

5FootWay inn  – I did come across this inn while researching on Chinatown. Not sure if it’s good though.

After a short walk in Chinatown, I proceeded to Chinatown Point for my dessert time. Notice the Chinatown Library? I have read that it specializes on Chinese Books (well, it’s Chinatown) so it might be an interesting library to experience Chinese culture by reading.

The dessert shop that I was looking for – Mei Heong Yuan Dessert. I have read somewhere that this is shop that was recommended to Japanese tourists which seemed true since I had seen 3 groups of Japanese tourists there while I was eating.

I tried the Mango Snow Ice which was recommended online. I liked everything about the dessert except for the cube mangoes at the side which were too sour for me.

Some interesting art piece at Promenade MRT Station. (Actually, I think I have seen it at the Art Museum before but I could be wrong.)

I went to this library to study as it was recommended online as one of the quiet study spots in Singapore. This is a beautiful library that had the performing arts as its theme. There was a space for dancing, playing the piano and many of its collection included music.

It is a conducive place to study for me to study 3 hours straight well and I had finished my Korean assignments. Only weakness is that to reach the library, you would have to walk quite a distance – passing the malls, the theatre and the art exhibitions. When I had left at evening time, I had managed to catch a group of performers near the theatre area. Really nice place to have a walk(many malls are linked), study at the library then end off with watching a free evening performance.
