Abstract: There are much debates over the issues of conservation area in Chinatown whether it actually benefits the businesses since the launch of Tourism 21. With the continual revitalization initiatives, it is opportune to investigate whether the businesses in Chinatown have actually benefited from these efforts or not. This study investigates that “the conservation area in Chinatown benefits the businesses” using the year of 2005 as a benchmark. It sets out to determine the conservation areas in Chinatown (after revitalization efforts) actually benefit the businesses. This study also seeks to evaluate the business performances of those trades that comply with preconceived notions of an “essential” character of Chinatown after the revitalization initiatives in Chinatown. Therein would be appropriate to give recommendations to boost the vitality of Chinatown. The scope of study will only focus on the economic benefits of the businesses and entail the social aspect in the study as one component of economic benefits. Many patrons and shophouse owners interviewed feel that Chinatown has become more vibrant after the revitalization effort. The conservation areas of Chinatown generally benefit the businesses there. Most trades compatible with the heritage of Chinatown as well as other trades found in Chinatown have benefited from Chinatown after the revitalization effort. However there are a handful of traditional trades such as the porcelain pottery shop and the merchant/dealer do not benefit from the revitalized Chinatown because the increased in rent is much higher than their increase in revenue.
