  • Chinawtown Singapore is one of Singapore's Chinatown areas where a live tour is possible. It is easy to reach with the Chinatown metro line. I can explore a lot of places here. Out of MRT Chinatown I have accepted the scene of Chinatown, with lanterns hanging from the ceiling.

And warned against using flash lights to take pictures so as not to spoil their reverence for adoration.
