Fabulous. Suzanne arranged everything with ease. Booked a 3 hour tour. My guide was Ricardo Seah, a great photographer who teaches. I learned a ton and had a great time. Having someone who can help you with composition is a game changer.

Chinatown has remained faithful to its roots as a
space which clambers with shop signs and welcomes
