With motion picture film.
There’s a touristy bit of Chinatown Singapore (Smith Street-ish) and a less touristy part. Often, they’re just side by side and you need to know which doors to duck into, or which alleys to turn off into, to see the less tourist bits.
Since I grew up here, I think I have a pretty good handle on things. There are the little barely marked doors past my favorite food stalls. Go through a door and turn left, and you’ll get to a large wholesaler of Korean toiletries. Take a certain overhead bridge, and you’ll get to another part of Chinatown that will soon turn into the bars and restaurants of Clarke Quay.
