Chinatown


Chinatown in Singapore is one of the oldest parts of the city, located fairly centrally a short distance to the south of the city. While most of Singapore is heavily Chinese influenced, this part of the city has kept a certain charm with several historic sites remembering the earliest Chinese immigrants.
Of course Chinatown is the place to head for Chinese food, and much of the region is a selection of small shop houses selling a variety of (often strange) products. Simply walking around the area will give visitors a feel of life in centuries past. Of course a visit to the Chinatown Heritage Centre tells the story of early immigrants.
There are several significant religious sites within the area, from several different religions, each with their own architectural style. The Temple of the Buddha Tooth Relic is has a 27 foot statue of Maitreya Buddha as well as the relic itself. Jamae Mosque is a mosque with a stand out entrance gateway. Sri Mariamman Temple is an active temple most famed for its firewalking ceremony, while Thian Hock Keng temple originates as a temple for early immigrants to give thanks for their safe passage.
