Model Answer:
Chinatown in Singapore is one of the most interesting places I have ever visited as a tourist. I have never been to China but Singapore’s Chinatown gave me a pretty good idea about this unseen country.

Chinatown is located within the larger district of Outram and the name was given by the British and is still used by the people. This place features the distinctive ethnic and cultural Chinese and it historically concentrates ethnical Chinese population.

I went to Singapore as a tourist and visiting Chinatown was scheduled by our travel company. It was probably early December 2012 when we visited the Chinatown.
As a tourist I explored as much area as possible of this region, I ate authentic Chinese foods, I visited Chinese Heritage Centre and saw the impressive and beautiful Sri Mariamman Hindu temple & Buddha Tooth Relic temple. I visited many mom-and-pop and traditional shops, bought some interesting stuff and talked to some local shop owners and salespersons.

The whole area was very attractive and interesting in my taste. I felt like I was witnessing something I have never seen existed. The street architecture of building, shop houses, painted ladies and the people gave me a totally different experience. I have tasted a whole different Chinese menu that I have never eaten.  Trengganu Street, Pagoda Street and Temple Street are some examples of unique and traditional architecture that was quite fascinating.

I stayed there for about 2 days and these 48 hours of time gave me a quite new and enthralling experience. I think this place was very interesting and quite distinctive in my experience.
