Nanyang Siang Pau (Chinese: 南洋商報; pinyin: Nányáng Shāngbào) as name Nanyang Sin Chew (Chinese: 南洋星洲; pinyin: Nányáng Xīngzhōu) was a newspaper in Singapore that was founded by philanthropist-entrepreneur Tan Kah Kee on 6 September 1923 in Singapore.

On 2 May 1971, three senior staff of the newspaper were arrested, accused of "a deliberate campaign to stir up Chinese racial emotions". [1]

The newspaper merged with Sin Chew Jit Poh on 16 March 1983 to form the current Lianhe Zaobao and has ceased to exist.

A version of the newspaper is still in print in Malaysia.
