Chinatown, Buenos Aires

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.

  • Chinatown is located in the barrio of Belgrano is very easy to reach, it is a walk of several hours, so if you think that you can go for a short while better plan it for another day. The oriental culture is deeply rooted, you can find many places to eat, be they restaurants or typical street food. An endless variety of local Asian supermarkets and galleries for search and search. A very entertaining, where you can find everything, and if you do not want to buy really is a very entertaining ride, or miss it.

  • Just 4 blocks with an assortment of shops, restaurants and supermarkets. Many tourists also local, despite the amount of people and the environment was not exhausting. It is ideal to buy spices, gourmet and Oriental food. There are many food stalls to the step with the large number of people. A nice and different place to spend a couple of hours and try the food which is excellent.

  • It is all a fair, a Sunday in Chinatown is magnificent. The sculptures on the street, restaurants have the best tasting food you always delivered freshly cooked food, is also authentic and traditional and, have excellent prices. The district is short, you can walk it, although it has many visitors must eat here and there, try, see, is a cool spot. Food is to experience, is worthwhile, they are mixtures of flavors that is why I say you need to try in a place and in another, the prices are very comfortable. Get off on the train in the station Belgrano c and leaving you find with Chinatown, then there is no excuse. The only railway costs 7 pesos.

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.
