Hard to find places to park and it's really expensive for up to 2 hours. They have converted all the roads and it's so confusing!. No road signs so be careful where you're going.

China Town is a very popular and vibrant area within Manchester with many Chinese restaurants to choose from all at a good price. Easy to get to by bus and definitely worth a visit!

Can only compare it to londons china town which is super obvious and compact and buzzing. This was super spread out and didn't feel like a China town at all. Would not recommend going out of your way to find this.

Came for a wander on Good Friday. Chinatown is small but has a nice feel to it. We had a wander around a chinese supermarket which had all manner of weird and wonderful foods for sale.

Basically 2 - 3 streets filled with touristy 'all you can eat' buffets and supermarkets. Chinatown could be much nicer if it wasn't littered with rubbish. The streets are filthy.
