Wow. Small Chinatown. Not much happening. Only came alive with lion dance and singing and music and night stall markets. Jam packed with sticky smelly people from the humid heat. Had to get out of the crowd.

Hubby and I were very disappointed in Chinatown. Not like what South Australia has. No dumplings and it was very isolated. The only place we found was a run down english pub with a lot of men gambling in it. Don’t waste your time going...More
