Singapore – Chinatown

A visit to Chinatown on the eve of the Chinese New Year’s was quite overwhelming.  The throngs of people, the decorations, the food and the excitement was an experience unique in its’ own way.

As soon as you ascend the stairway of the Chinatown MRT Station, this is what you encounter, the heart of Chinatown.
