Manchester China Town, speaking as a Manchester resident makes the offering in any other City including London appear to be half hearted. A thriving area of shops and restaurants.

I have seen the development of Chinatown over the past 60 years and to be perfectly honest, I think that it is a bit of a let-down. Apart from the arch there is little to suggest that it is anything but a slightly scruffy couple of side streets in the centre of Manchester. Yes, there are some excellent eating places... More

Also, there r three supermarkets there, which is good. However they r extremely expensive. I hoped that China town has reasonable price fruits but they... More

When in Manchester you must visit the Chinese Arch, it is a wonderful piece if art. There is a brilliant little gift shop just opposite it, lots of unique gifts for anyone who likes the chinese culture. Didn't have time to eat there but believe there are some amazing restaurants.
