Named after the bullock carts that used to supply fresh water to its resident, Chinatown (NE4/DT19) is an ethnic neighborhood featuring distinctly Chinese cultures. Rows of shop houses, dingy alleys and cramped five-foot-ways have now been transformed into Chinatown Food Street and Chinatown Night Market, favorite hotspots among locals and tourists alike. All the streets came alive, during Chinese Festivals such as Chinese New Year and Mid-Autumn festivals where the area will be decked out in decorations.
At Chinatown Heritage Centre, one can take a glimpse into Singapore’s early history with original recreations of the past. Many famous places of worship are also within the vicinity, including the Sri Mariamman Temple, Masjid Jamae and Buddha Tooth Relic Temple. People’s Park Complex, Chinatown Point and Oriental Plaza are iconic commercial and retail buildings as well. For the younger generation, Ann Siang Hill is now filled with quirky shops and cafes, making it a popular hangout spot easily accessible from the North East Line and Downtown Line.
