One of the places we visited in Singapore was Chinatown.

I love to visit Buddhist temples and of course Chinatown.  I always get a good feeling walking around and soaking up the culture.

Then you have all the Chinese lanterns hanging everywhere.  Just think the time it takes to hang all the lanterns and run power to them so they light up at night.  Let me tell you the sight is amazing.

I could spend hours just looking at the architecture and the beauty of this temple.  This temple is well designed and very pleasant to look at.

This is a picture looking inside as people pray.  Soon we leave the temple and move on to Chinatown which is a short walk from the temple.

This guy here is selling a variety of junk foods.  I’ve found in Asia that they have a much better assortment of junk food than we do in the USA.

One shop we stopped at had just about any meat you want all dried and they had the meat hanging everywhere.  As hot and humid as it is in Singapore I wonder how long it will last before it spoiled.  Needless to say all the meat here smelled and looked good even though I wasn’t sure I could eat it.

I could not help but to stop and listen to this guy play Erhu.  I’ve only heard one played on TV or movies.  If you were to travel to Singapore you should make a point to stop at the Temple and walk through Chinatown.  There is Culture to Explore here, take it in and see how life is away from your home.  There is nothing like telling people about the people and places you have traveled too.
