Nothing to see

Busy, dirty, nothing to see or buy. It could be interesting only for food, there are some restaurants but it's not for a special trip. It's pretty small.

Like the shops around there n they should do renovations and attract more people. Lots of shopping to be done. Very Asian n I love it. But u can't roam around alone after 6pm 😕

This place is superb if you are going there when there is the Chinese food events and festivals. It is too noisy and nothing attractive except restaurants and hardware stores.

Unlike many bustling China Towns this one is rather sad and dilapidated. Good place to get a Chinese meal if you are a fan. but nothing special, so don't make a special trip.

If you have ever been in china town won't see anything new. If you are near it is ok to take a peek and that ist mostly all.

If you drive along the small roads of China Town you will find loads of snacks or people selling fried noodles or even briani.

We wandered in to here and loved it. Take the time to look inside some of the big old shops that don't look as though they have changed in 50 years, and marvel at the tiny shops hardly bigger than a cupboard.
