Chinatown of Singapore with a Buddhism temple in the background. It is a view along the Temple street. For Europeans like me it's an interesting and unknown world. Have look to the shops and you see things never seen before.

from Wikipedia:
Singapore's Chinatown is an ethnic neighbourhood featuring distinctly Chinese cultural elements and a historically concentrated ethnic Chinese population. Chinatown is located within the larger district of Outram. As the largest ethnic group in Singapore is Chinese, composing approximately 75% of the population, Chinatown is considerably less of an enclave than it once was. However, the district does retain significant historical and cultural significance. Large sections of it have been declared national heritage sites officially designated for conservation by the Urban Redevelopment Authority.
