I was on a city tour of the town & amongst all other places I took a quick stroll on this street. It is a small street with lot of shops, cafes, & small eat outs which is good to spend couple of hours

Good to take a leisure walk around this area, but don't expect fascinating sights or buildings. Simple shops around to check out.

There is so much to see and do in Chinatown. Colorful temples to visit, antique stores, lantern stores and then there is the food. Ohhhh, so much great food in this town. Day or night this is a great place to visit.

Very crowded place, also in the night (especially if there's the night market). A lot of delicious food and snacks to try.

Nice area to walk around but a lot more than just a Chinese area, more multi cultural around the roads. Good chicken and rice places to try a bit of local cuisine.
