Chinatown

 
 

Though 77% of the population are ethnic Chinese, Chinatown is the heart of Singapore's Chinese community. Like most of Singapore, Chinatown has not been spared from urban redevelopment. Nevertheless, Chinatown is still of cultural and historical significance, with many old buildings preserved as heritage sites and many Chinese associations or clubs are still located here.
