Singapore Chinatown Part 3 - The Streets

Singapore's Chinatown is an ethnic neighbourhood featuring distinctly Chinese cultural elements and a historically concentrated ethnic Chinese population.

The Chinese are the largest ethnic group in Singapore, composing approximately 75% of the population and so it wasn't surprising to find that Chinatown encompassed a whole host of streets such as Pagoda Street and Trengganu Street, the latter of which was a pedestrian mall, transforming into a night market after dark. We took to the streets to explore...
