Charlene is an excellent host and the tea appreciation workshop is another facet of Chinatown's things-to-do: museums, temples and shophouses. We drank many cups of excellent tea as Charlene led us through an introduction of the Chinese obsession with tea :) Try to go in...More

A truly unique experience. We learned so much about tea in the tea appreciation workshop. Vincent is a fountain of knowledge. Everyone in the shop was very welcoming and the tea was delicious. Highly recommend it!

Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
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 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.
