Along with the different types of buildings Chinatown offers a big variety of shopping places , especially for souveniers, which is very affordable and cheap. ( I suggest that the souvenier shopping can be done here since there is too many variety with low prices)....More

What images come to your mind when you think of Chinatown? For me, it's the endless train of food, the shine of multicolored lights, and the happy din of conversations. Come visit this place to enjoy!

Busy place, but everything you would ever want is there, the food and drink experience was fantastic. The cleanest Chinatown I have ever been to. Make sure you get an ice cream sandwich. They are the best! And so cheap.

Just jumped on the train near our hotel and went to Chinatown. Well worth a visit. We bought a few trinkets and had lunch. I would go back again. Wanted to visit the Michelin star street vendor but not enough time. Kind regards Petrina Australia

What a great place to wonder up and down. Fantastic food and little souveniers to take back home. A lot of fake goods, but still worth the look.

Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful sights,
enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The
precinct is unique, however, in its blending of
religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic
mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side
