I have had a few experiences of Chinatowns...but Singapore has the most exciting and historic Chinatown anywhere in world. The temples and fusion of cultures is amazing and the history of how the early Chinese settled in Singapore....fantastic

If you have never been to the real China, then you might be impressed. You could think that what you are seeing is authentically Chinese, Singapore being mainly Chinese anyway. In reality, you are seeing a South East Asian tourist precinct with the usual lap...More
