Many shops, temples, restaurants to wander into and explore. Chinatown is not just for visitors many locals come here to shop.

Got to buy old coins and old teapots for a little price. It was clean and the salesperson was not pushy but very helpful.

Shopping is cheap and colourful, but the best thing there is food street, which comprises of small food stalls and shops, each specialising in various chinese dishes. Great food and cheap.
