Singapore (People's Daily) - People are flocking to Singapore's Chinatown to prepare for the upcoming Year of the Dog. 

Making a comeback this year after a decade's absence is a special new year flower market.

The market started on February 5 this year and will end on the eve of the new year by lunar calendar.

This Chinatown is one of the largest in Southeast Asia, because more than 70 percent of the population in Singapore is of Chinese heritage. 

In Chinatown, traditional Spring Festival door hangings and decorative paper cutouts are popular on the streets, as well as many kinds of Chinese food, including Cantonese bacon, sautéd melon seeds, and mandarin oranges.

In the evening, the old Chinatown is decorated by red lanterns. Traditional and modern culture mixes here, showcasing Chinese culture to the world.
