Far East Square
Designed and built according to the Chinese concept of geomancy, Far East Square reconstructs Chinatown the way it was in the old days. The streets are lined with shops bearing architecture dating back to 1840. The structural details and motifs reflect traditional Chinese beliefs, superstitions and values. A stroll along the Heritage Trail and a visit to the Fuk Tak Chi Museum offer a glimpse into the lives of early immigrants. Live performances of traditional theater, music and dance can also be seen on the very spot where Chinese street operas were once performed.
