This was on our list just for an hour or so and what fun it was. So many stalls, so much cheap goods, what a great place to get some cheap souvenirs if that is what you wanted. I picked up two pairs of prescription glasses for $5 each (I had sat on mine). Hotel lobbies and tourist information have... More

Lots of stalls mostly selling cheap end tat and souvenirs. OK for a quick walk through but with the benefit of hindsight would not go out of my way to visit.

Thank God we got situated near the Haymarket Area as it offers everything! For a tourist for our daily needs, hopping to Haymarket is the best. There you will find almost everything that you need especially since Paddys Market is located here. Haymarket depending on your location well at least for me is at the back of the Darling Harbour...

Last minute shopping and you have limited petty cash, come to this market. I found handful of budget souvenirs here to take home. Accessible by Tram or just 15 minutes walk from Central Station.

We went to this market expecting it to be similar to our experience at the Victoria Market in Melbourne, however we were disappointed. The good are repetitive between stalls with no variety, the stalls are very small so there is inadequate room to move around if you are wanting to look at the goods and I got sick of "hey... More

Visited Paddy's Market on the last day of our 4 day visit. Thank goodness we did not forego something worthwhile. There are booths of low budget souvenirs and knockoffs of name brand merchandise. A disappointment as I have been to much better flea markets.

There's a lot of variety at Paddy's markets. It's in a great location, right beside Darling Harbour, Chinatown and under Market City, where there are direct factory outlets. Check out the times it's open, because it's not open every day. It's not the biggest marketplace you'll see, but there's a lot going on, and there are good prices. It's more... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the neighborhood's specialty delis and groceries. From yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theater, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.
