We went here for lunch. The minute you walk in you are being approached repeatedly to buy purses and what not, even followed by sales people. Then when we went into restaurant they wanted us to get our food to go. We stayed wanting the...More

This place is unlike any other place you have been before. Very good for authentic chinese food. Additionally, you want to buy cheap jewelry, handbag and gifts, then this is the place. I have been here several times to buy fresh fish.

We spent a nice afternoon here shopping and dining on Chinese food. We went to a tea house for authentic dim Sum and tea. We went to pearl river market and shopped for items for our Chinese New Year celebration.

Plenty of fresh produce and fish markets...eateries, dim sum and gift shops. Gift shop workers are a bit aggressive and at times do not take no for an answer, but if you master the art of ignoring you will be fine. Easily spend a couple...More

This place is so unique. I've never seen anything like it before in my life. Its a little intimidating at first because of the amount of people and the sellers yelling for you to buy their things. If you're good at haggling, this is your...More

Really enjoyed seeing this part of town. A throwback in time for sure. Bargain for fake jewelry and handbags if you desire but the real attraction is the authentic food offerings. Loved our visit.

Easy to get to and it takes you to another country without leaving the city, lots of colour, people, a fun place to shop - have seen many Chinatown's, not sure it is very much different.

It is worth wondering through Chinatown. The food shops are fun to see. If you are looking for bargains they are willing to haggle to make the sale. Never pay the first price they tell you.

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where

Yes, it's worth a visit if you're going to be in Manhattan; but I wouldn't make it a priority.
hi, are the knock off stuff they sell obvious or do you have to ask? and is it just bags they sell or a bit of everything? thanks

You will be approached by people on the street asking if you want Gucci, etc. I just said no thank you. The items in the store really aren't that well made. The one thing I did purchase though was pashmina shawls - barter... More
Interested in checking out Chinatown. It's a large district what area has the most shops & eateries? I'm looking for a location to start so that I am not wondering aimlessly. Thanks
