A nice place to feel comfortable beware of pickpockets though. Eat well with real ethnic colour and even until late (midnight) though alcohol is prohibited after 11:00 PM.

As this place was very busy with lots of visitors it was difficult to move around but most of the shops had similar items for sale. Loud music blaring everywhere plus it was a very hot day.

This is a real working Chinatown, it's safe bust with tones of food vendors and everything from traditional medical shops to gits and every type of food you could ask for. Try a trishaw ride. Just a lot of fun.

Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its

Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.
