Location

One of Singapore’s older districts, Chinatown was almost caught up in the rush to modernize during the 80’s. Luckily the trend turned instead towards restoration, resulting in many of the old Chinese shophouses being restored to their former character. A number have now been made into boutique hotels and guesthouses offering unusual and quite unique accommodation. An easy place to get to, Chinatown is now one of Singapore's most popular neighborhoods. Tiny shops with fascinating interiors provide an insight in to the cultural heritage of the Chinese community in Singapore. A refreshing change from the hectic pace of Orchard Road and a wonderful place to wander, shop and eat.

A dynamic city rich in contrast and colour, you'll find a harmonious blend of culture, cuisine, arts and architecture here. Brimming with unbridled energy, this little dynamo in Southeast Asia embodies the finest of both East and West.

From the nearby MRT stations, you can take a speedy train ride to major routes in Singapore. For your convenience, the Hotel also operates daily shuttle services down town.

Situated at the East end yet within a 5 minute walk to the centre of Chinatown, the Furama hotel is also a short stroll away from the waterholes of Boat Quay and Clarke Quay. The financial district is also within walking distance. Chinatown and Clarke Quay MRT stations are within easy walking distance.

Located in the heart of Chinatown and a stone-throw distance from the Financial and Civic District, Furama Hotel Singapore is within easy walking distance to the financial hub, heritage attractions, restaurants and shopping belt. With the doorstep access of 5 minutes to the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) Stations of Chinatown and Clarke Quay, guests can conveniently travel to any part of Singapore.
