About Fernloft Chinatown
Fernloft® (Singapore) Chinatown is strategically located in the most exotic neighborhood of Singapore. Surrounded by the rich traditions amidst the modern landscape, you will find the best of old and new world at your doorste
STEP BACK IN TIME
This traditional neighborhood offers a glimpse of life of the mid- 1950s in bustling Singapore. Chinatown is where Singapore’s earliest immigrants lived. One can still witness the rich local traditions, where you get to mingle in the colorful alleys with famous street hawkers selling exotic snacks, traditional storytellers, opera singers and even fortune tellers!
Admire the meticulously restored shop houses and stroll along the streets where anything from antiques to modern electronics can be found. No more walking long distances back to your hostel with heavy shopping bags!
ACCESSIBILITY AND AMENITIES
The Chinese name of Chinatown actually means Water Buffalo Riverway, once known for its reliance on river taxis and bullock carts to get around; Chinatown is now serviced by modern transport services such as the local subway (the MRT or Mass Rapid Transit), air-conditioned buses and taxis a-plenty.
We are accessible by two subway stations - Chinatown MRT Station (NE4) and Outram Park MRT Station (NE3) which are both within walking distances to our hostel. Many public buses also provide cheap alternative access to Orchard Road and around the island. For the more adventurous, catch a ride in a trishaw and relive the past!
Amenities also abound in this quaint neighborhood. You will easily find a range of 24-hr banking services, shopping centers, local pubs, restaurants, cheap hawker food centers, 24-hr convenience shops and traditional Chinese medical halls/clinics.
Finding food in Chinatown is never easier. An endless choice of eateries - from traditional local cuisine to western contemporary fare - awaits you! Among the popular choices are the Maxwell Food Court, Chinatown Market and the Food Alley at Smith Street. Prices range from the incredibly low at the street stalls to medium and high at the 5-star restaurants.
SIGHTS TO SEE
The majestic Buddha Tooth Relic Temple & Museum. can be viwed from our hostel's balcony. This new temple is a living cultural monument in the heart of Chinatown and is famous worldwide because it houses the Sacred Buddha Tooth Relic in a magnificent Relic Stupa made of 420kg of gold donated by devotees.
A stone’s throw away from us are the other historical temples of various religious and cultural significance. Among them will be the Jamae Mosque (at 218 South Bridge Road), which is one of Singapore's oldest mosques, built in the 1830s by Tamil Muslims and boasts an Indian-architectural style.
