You might think that Chinatown was the place where Singapore’s first Chinese immigrants settled. But did you know that before Chinatown, there was Telok Ayer. Telok Ayer was the original area allocated to the Chinese community in Sir Stamford Raffles’ 1822 Plan for the Town of Singapore. It was around this very street that the Chinese settlement grew and flourished.
