Just one street

Only one street, a few shops, some restaurants and that´s it. Go through if you are way around, but don´t expect a lot.

It is not really a tourist attraction unless you count the gate but it is worth a visit for the restaurants and the supermarkets. Fantastic dim sum and other Chinese food that you will not get in British supermarkets

As you would expect from the title this is a little enclave of China in the middle of Manchester. There are lots of restaurants but also shops selling everything you could possibly want.

The Chinese town is located near town center ,but it does not have anything extraordinary to show to visitors.There are only some streets with lots of restaurants and shops and of course the Chinese arch with is beautiful.

I was staying a couple of hundred meters down the road, so went up to Chinatown in Manchester for dinner on a couple of nights. Whilst the Chinatown in Manchester is quite small (only a couple of roads), its packed with lots of restaurants (Chinese (surprise surprise), Thai & Japanese), the two I tried being very good. Also very good... More

A walk through the irea showed it to need some TLC. Worth looking at the arch and plenty of restayrants about but all the area is grimy and litter strewn. Not really on a tourist trail in my mind

My favourite time to visit is in February. This is when the Chinese new year is celebrated and you can enjoy Chinese festivities! There are some very nice restaurant here as well.

Nothing special to see here. Just loads of restaurants. This Chinatown is really small and doesnt have any activity. Just a fine walk through but no reason to stay for long.
