I had an amazing experience at Chinatown Crossings. As a Singaporean Chinese and working in Chinatown, I am not unfamiliar to Kreta Ayer. So I was very impressed by how the stories and places in Kreta Ayer were really brought to life through the artistic...More

A very well-thought-out theatre tour, I was so transfixed from beginning till the end and was even moved to tears at one point. All the actors were simply amazing especially the children who played the younger versions of the main characters - the acting was...More

What a great experience - walking the streets of Chinatown with the characters. The actors’s love of their city and their craft was on show. Well worth the ticket price.

It was an enjoyable blend of drama and history sharing. The past of Kreta Ayer (Chinatown) came back to life with the true-to-life acting. To see the action on location made the drama more real. And to get to taste the food of the era...More

Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
