The Chinatown heritage centre is in the heart of busy Chinatown, we came across it by accident and decided a visit might be worthwhile. It's a recreation of a shop house of a Chinese tailor and family and workers/apprentices. It has an audio tour, it's...More

Love the fact that it portrays the culture and heritage of Chinatown. I think it is really well put together but sometimes too busy centre. One can go through the exhibit at their own pace which is the best part though if it is busy,...More

Three floors of attraction with the first two being narrated using audio commentary. It's self paced and the various rooms tell the story of the occupants and give a glimpse of the conditions in which they lived.

I have visited many China towns in many countries. This one is the small though small. There are many restaurants, handicrafts and clothing shops. Reasonable price.

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.

Hi, can you please give me the name/URL of the company who organized the free walking tour you mentioned? I tried googling but couldn't come up with anything. And is it free only for HiPPO customers or for everyone? Thanks!
