Following Singapore's founding, migrants looking to make their fortune in Singapore began arriving in droves. To ensure organised growth in the new settlement, Sir Stamford Raffles sat down with Lieutenant Jackson, the colony engineer, to draft out the Plan of the Town of Singapore, reorganising the ethnic groups into functional divisions along the river banks. The Chinese, making up 70% of the migrant population, were allocated the entire region southwest of the Singapore River, also known as Chinatown.

Today's Chinatown comprises five districts; Telok Ayer, Bukit Pasoh, Tanjong Pagar, Kreta Ayer and Ann Siang Hill. Designated as conservation areas by the Urban Redevelopment Board in 1989, these districts have over the years cultivated their own unique identity, housing attractions such as Chinatown Heritage Centre, Chinatown Food Street and Chinatown Night Market, and Kreta Ayer Wet Market.
