Chinatown.
Singapore’s Chinatown appeared approximately in 1821, when the first Chinese junk from Xiamen arrived in the province of Fujian. Each of the four largest areas of Chinatown - Kreta Ayer, Telok Ayer, Tanjong Pagar and Bukit Pasoh – has its own unique character. Fuk Tak Chi and Thian Hock Keng temples rise proudly above the center of Chinatown. Smith Street that is located nearby has become one of the main shopping destinations. This is the place where Chinese housewives bargain to get the best product, making this quarter very busy and often excessively noisy. If you feel the need for peace and tranquility, you will always find them in churches and in the Yixing Xuans teahouse. Just like many years ago, the teahouse still organizes traditional tea ceremonies.
