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.

    They are three blocks, with premises, all with the same products, or very similar... basares, plants and everything else you can imagine trinkets... Not if it is justified, are things qeu are on other sides of the city. Very nice neighborhood in which is inserted... close there is a park... all this is very nice... very nice area

    I think that it is a constant in all places of the world. And none has many differences. Business of typical food, things Chinese businesses, stores typical... nothing different

    Easily accessible, can be reached by train, whose stop is almost at the entrance of the neighborhood, subway, ten blocks from the place or in collective, rather direct recoorrido from capital Center. We have a number of stores that sell different consumer products in China but with the diversity they have become popular in our country. Variety of decorative objects, clothing and groceries, in species and vegetables, is also important to highlight the variety of restaurants that offer typical pltos.

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.
