I have loved creating this vibrant image combining all the elements that make up the unique visual feast of Chinatown Singapore.
Chinatown is one of the most vibrant neighbourhoods to visit in the little red dot, a riot of colour is everywhere from the buildings to the cakes, trinkets and beautiful lanterns on sale in the shops and night markets and together with the sizzle and aroma of street food on Jalan Makalan it is part of the sensory Chinatown vibe.
One of my favourite places to visit especially when I had family or guests in town is The Chinese Opera Teahouse, a showcase for the traditional dance form where you can see up close the exquisite detail of the make up and the costumes of the talented dancers.
Shophouses are prevalent in Chinatown, traditionally these were the live-work units of Chinese Peranakan Traders, they are painted a variety of colours but many are red and cream or red and white. The most prominent building in Chinatown is of course The Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, a Buddhist temple and museum complex built in the Tang Dynasty architectural style which houses a molar of Gautama Buddha and there is an impressive giant prayer wheel at the roof terrace where you can send your wishes out into the universe.
At celebration time especially in the lead up to Lunar New Year spectacular dances of the Dragon to ward off spirits and the Lion to bring in an auspicious year are a focus of street life in Chinatown.
