China town is near to Caudan waterfront. There was not much to see there. You will mostly see Chinese food item shops. Walked around for 20 mins and then went back to the Caudan Waterfront which is walking distance from China town.

We were rather disappointed, lots of traders lost of bustle, but very little of real interest, not real colour of flair to the place as you might expect in most "Chaintowns", a bit of a let down - failed to be welcoming for outsiders nor...More

Went there with no special interest. It was interesting, to see how many shops can coexist in that small place. Narrow streets are busy as poeple are walking there, moving some stuff and even motorbikes come through it. It was a good experience and we...More

I spent 2 hours exploring the streets and shops of Chinatown, as I recognised the style of the buildings from the time I lived in Kuching, Malaysia, and it made me feel at home. This colourful area is well worth a visit, and it was...More

It is the most simple Chinatown I’ve ever known. I’ve been more than 10 Chinatowns in many cities/ countries but this is the least busy, colourful one, maybe because the population of Chinese people here is minority compared to Indian community. If you don’t have...More

We strolled through china town, but compared to other china towns we saw in our travels, this one was nothing special. If you are short on time, skip it altogether.
