Chinatown in Singapore is similar with Petaling Street in Malaysia. The big difference which is easily see through your eyes is the cleanliness. The roads at Chinatown, Singapore is less dirty and you feel comfortable to walk along the road and sightseeing the stalls around it. The reason is simple because the law enforcement here is very strict and rigid. You will received a summon immediately if you were caught littering.
Other difference is not as noisy as Petaling Street where the sellers screaming loud to get your attention to look at their items. Last thing will be the buildings around Chinatown is well preserved. The local government made a great effort in maintaining the buildings to make sure to restore the old Chinatown environment that is used to know. While at Petaling Street, you can see only old dirty buildings around it which now the government planned to demolish them to build other construction there. The locals reacted seriously against such plan but how long can they stand against a government fortified decision? No one knows. Anyway, as for now...let's enjoy the photos of Chinatown in Singapore.
