This is the main street of Milano's Chinatown. Its a semi-pedestrian street with many stores to buy trinkets and such. Good dumplings and a pretty walk.

If you have been to China Town in London, New York or Melbourne, don't bother going here as for you will be disappointed. It's even hard to find a proper Chinese restaurant serving good food. But I did; Ristorante Yue Bin is quite okay.

We were told by another traveller tat there were some quaint shops and attractions here. Ok there were Chines lanterns as street lights but little else, except small tacky shops which were expensive for what they sold. Don't waste your time

Always worth checking out the little shops for some bargains, particularly if you're after some funky hairbands, or accessories. I have found some great stuff for my dancing outfits here.
