Having been to China Town in other countries was slightly disappointed with this. Was looking forward to seeing the street cooking and spices etc in sale, instead it was like a market full of copy goods, plenty of bags, watches and shoes to choose from.

I really enjoyed Chinatown. The foods alone were great, many cool things to try. The shopping was cheap and varied in quality, and bargaining is fun! Just be really careful, watch your belongings as pickpocketing is common here.
