Description

Like all the great things, Chinatown had a humble beginning.

Following Singapore’s founding, migrants looking to make their fortune in Singapore began arriving in droves. Life back then wasn’t easy for the man on the street and home often meant nothing more than a wooden board to serve as a bed. Fresh water had to be carted in by bullock-drawn carts, the practice of which gave rise to Chinatown’s other name – Niu Che Shui, or Bullock-Cart-Water.

Over the years, Chinatown has changed and evolved, but it remains our beloved enclave of culture and tradition, defined by the very people who live, work and play on its streets – and here are their stories.
