BINONDO: YEAR OF THE GOLDEN TIGER

Since i don't deal well with crowds, I requested HB to take some shots of Binondo's Golden Tiger year of festivities. All these photos were taken one day before the arrival of Lunar New Year.

Chinatowns are present all across the globe predominantly in East Asia and Southeast Asia. In the Philippines, Manila's Chinatown district of Binondo is the key focal point for Chinese New Year celebrations.

Other activities created an atmosphere of fun and excitement. On the fourth flour of the building, three men tossing coins at the large crowd.
