Geographical Investigation In Chinatown
Anna Tay Wan Enn
Secondary 3A, Fencing Academy
“Chinatown” was an area that Sir Stamford Raffles carved out for the Chinese population in the 1800s, and the current businesses there continue to reflect the history that the area.
It is for the purpose of ascertaining if there has been a huge change in the land use that the Secondary 3 student-athletes carried out a geographical investigation in Chinatown on 6 March 2019. We were divided into two teams: One team plotted the different shops along Pagoda Street and Smith Street and a second team counted the number of people entering the two same streets.
There are still Traditional Chinese Medicine shops, shops selling ornaments related to religions practiced by the Chinese, restaurants serving Chinese cuisine, etc. But there are now also many shops selling Singapore souvenirs – as this heritage site is now a tourist attraction.
We concluded that more people had gone to Chinatown during that period of survey, which was an hour and a half in the mid-afternoon, for culture and heritage appreciation purposes.
