It's just an average street with usual touristy rubbish and street food. But you do it if in the area to view the temples

The historic Street of the Dead has been reborn into a thriving shopping street which mainly offers some interesting gift ideas for tourists.

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.
