The highlights of the visit is the museum in the 4th floor where the relic can be view in a protective glass. No pictures are allowed in this place. Women has to wear proper attire no shorts allowed.

Is a solemn place, so silence and respect is in order, as well of no photos shoots inside, but the photos of the entry are worthy. Is a shot kind of visit about 30 min. Include it on you trip to China town.

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.
