Chinatown, Sydney

2.5
#4 of 17 in Neighborhoods in New South Wales
Sydney's Chinatown is the oldest and largest Chinatown in Australia. Some top-tier Chinese chefs moved to Sydney in the 1990s, making this district world-famous for its Asian cuisine. There are Asian shops and open-air markets selling everything from traditional Chinese medicinal herbs to jewelry, meat, fish, flowers, vegetables, books, electronics, and inexpensive souvenirs. Several movie theaters offer daily screenings of documentary and feature films produced in Asia. Asian art galleries, restaurants, karaoke bars, shopping malls, and small boutiques attract visitors from around the world. While you can visit the area on your own, there is so much to see here, many tourists opt to join an official tour.

  • It is always alive, with great food at every turn, and some great pub's... It has a mini HK feel about it.... Definitely worth sometime whenever in or about Sydney's CBD.  more »
