Chinatown, Buenos Aires

(1,000+ reviews on the web)
Neighborhood Tourist Spot
Pass under the impressive arch with guardian dragons at the top and lions at its sides to enter Chinatown, packed with shops, restaurants, massage parlors, and acupuncture salons. Stroll down crowded streets and along the train tracks, lined with stores selling inexpensive clothes, purses, jewelry, toys, Samurai swords, and porcelain teapots, all made in China. Supermarkets offer typical Asian products like rice noodles, seaweed, dried seeds, tofu, wasabi, and soy sauce. If you get hungry, you can choose from a number of restaurants and fast food stalls.
