The colorful people of Chinatown Singapore


As I was telling you in my previous post, this weekend we have been celebrating the beginning of the Dragon year, aka the chinese lunar new year... and what better place to feel fully immersed in the celebrations than in Chinatown?! 
In this post I am sharing with you the beautiful colors, people and traditions of Chinatown in full Chinese new year action :)
