'Chinatowns are an inalienable part of the ethnic Chinese identity in Southeast Asia. Far from being merely clusters of buildings and shops with Chinese architectural styles and/or motifs, Chinatowns in Southeast Asia have a human facet that tells the stories of their dwellers and visitors. This project attempts to do just that through the highly accessible medium of photography and aims to capture the sights of the human side of Chinatowns in Southeast Asia in face of rapid globalization.
'Zhuang Wubin spends a good part of 2008 in the Chinatowns of the ten Southeast Asian cities of Banda Seri Begawan, Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Phnom Penh, Singapore, Vientiane and Yangon capturing the photographs collected in this book.' (from back cover)
