The Mass Rapid Transit or MRT is a rapid transit system that forms the backbone of the railway system in Singapore, spanning the entire city-state. The initial section of the MRT, between Yio Chu Kang Station and Toa Payoh Station, opened in 1987 establishing itself as the second-oldest metro system in Southeast Asia, after Manila's LRT System. The network has since grown rapidly as a result of Singapore's aim of developing a comprehensive rail network as the main backbone of the public transport system in Singapore with an average daily ridership of 1.952 million in 2009, just over 63% of the bus network's 3.085 million in the same period.

Chinatown is a part of Singapore. Actually 70% Singaporean are Chinese but special Chinese zone is ChinaTown. You will feel like you’re in China while visiting Chinatown. The price is also cheaper than in city. They sell a lot of things you need, includes food, equipments, tools, clothes, bags, and many more. But you’ve to be careful while choosing the things you’ll buy. Not all the things are in good quality. Also, you have to think about the price while you bid. Chinatown is really unique! While visiting Singapore, don’t forget to visit ChinaTown!

Eli : Okay, c’mon, we’re gonna go to Little India! I think there is a MRT station there… so we’ll ride MRT!
Alexander : Okay! Ehm… this egg tart is so delicious!
