Singapore's tourist street, most of the goods are Yiwu goods, locals are used to it! Each city has a special cultural street, and Singapore has a lot of cultural streets. Among the many cultural streets, the most noticeable is Chinatown, which is one of the origins of Chinese culture in Southeast Asia. It is also the main settlement of early Chinese in Singapore. It is still the most commercial street with Chinese characteristics, almost every Chinese tourist. I have to punch in here. Like many Chinatowns, Chinatown is not the name of a single street, but a general term for large blocks including Xinqiao Road, Maxwell Road and Ketair Road. In the past, there was no running water in Singapore, and local residents used ox carts to pull water. Chinatown has a Buddha tooth temple, which is a Tang-style building with a Buddha tooth relic. The appearance of the Buddhist temple is magnificent and contrasts with the modern buildings in the surrounding area. The incense is strong here, and many tourists come to visit and see a large chanting or singing scene every afternoon. DSC0352.jpg The streets and lanes of Chinatown are full of rich Chinese style, except for the local old-fashioned hand-letter shops such as beef jerky, as well as various palace lanterns, lanterns, tumblers, goddess of wealth, and small lions. And other crafts. Every year during the Spring Festival, Chinatown has a traditional Chinese New Year performance such as a lion dance performance. The folding fan sold by the nivine water truck merchant is very fine, whether it is a painter or a carving. Singapores economy has grown to the present, commerce and tourism have become the backbone of the economy, and manufacturing has become increasingly weak. The daily use of this garden country is highly dependent on imports. The food and vegetables come from Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and other neighboring countries. Many handicrafts are Yiwu goods, and some are wholesaled from Guangzhou Yide Road. Visiting some of the shops in Chinatown is like visiting a boutique market in China. Local people are used to this phenomenon. Chinatown is connected in series to the Singapore subway line, and the subway station is the commercial street. In addition to tourists, many Singaporean Chinese also like to stroll here. There are some old record shops in Chinatown, where you can find a lot of out-of-print vinyl records, and occasionally find some drama records that have disappeared in China. Chinatown is one of Singapore's gourmet paradise, where you can find a lot of authentic food, such as Bak Kut Teh, fried rice noodles, seafood porridge and so on. Some restaurants or small restaurants have a long history and have become old-fashioned. The Niushuishui Building is one of the core buildings of the entire Chinatown. On the side of the entrance is a leisure and entertainment center, where middle-aged and elderly people often play cards. The basement of the building is the vegetable market, the first floor is a department store selling clothes, CDs, etc. The second floor is a cooked food center, which is a bit like a domestic food city. The small stalls inside are covered, selling all kinds of food and drinks, because of the low price. Singaporeans who work in the vicinity will come and visit. The buildings of Chinatown are mainly composed of colorful buildings. The only crossover bridge is a full Chinese design. On the top, you can see several pavilions with red columns and green tiles. A large number of bougainvillea planted on the edge of the bridge, and the streetscape against each other, is very charming.
