Hotel Choong Tin .....


Wonder if they will still maintain this very traditional Chinese name when the hotel is ready.

Not only they maintain the original name of this hotel, in fact, they improvise it - from Hotel Choong Tin to Choong Tin Lau. "Lau" is Inn in Chinese. Sounds very traditional! It brings us back to the era where those walk-in guests are mostly warriors or kung fu fighters carrying their "luggage" (personal belongings - mostly clothes wrapped with big piece of cloth) and of course, their Chinese swords!


Love those windows and window arches. Very classic look! The name Choong Tin Inn is beautifully written in Chinese calligraphy. Admire their logo - by joining four Chinese ancient coins (those round coins with holes in the middle) - it forms a double 8. Very auspicious! Wondering if the number (address) of this hotel is 88.

Hello Kayes,


Is the last pic. from bottom edited? Just curious to know. Smile In less than 3 years (between second pic. from bottom and last pic. from bottom), there is a vast difference in the paintwork.
