I was back in Chinatown recently, and not much has changed. A huge eyesore was being demolished just across the street from the Cultural Centre, so that's nothing but positive news there There's still only 1 point of access from the +15 Pedestrian system, through...More

China town is located close to down town. There are many, many restaurants both old and new. The Chinese food ranges from quite good to not so good. The pricing also ranges from medium to quite high. There are lots of Chinese shops to browse....More

Although this place is relative safe and clean, it doesn't really have the chinatown feel. But you can visit if you have the time. There are of course quite a lot of restaurants and eateries here. It is also near the bridge overlooking the river...More

If you're not looking for a thrill, scenery, or entertainment but just for some good food, go for it! Plenty of good restaurants here from many parts of Asia. The dining is inexpensive, casual, and most importantly good food. Give it a try!

Their is really nothing here to see. The most notable place is the Chinese cultural society which is in an interesting building. Beyond that and a small garden is pretty much the entire show.
