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.

  • A walk in the neighborhood of Belgrano and arrive in the barrio chino was a different ride and cool after going in BA.

  • The Barrio Chino is a great place for those who like to buy small things like school supplies and Office, maquagem, home decorations and accessories. Ideal place to buy gifts and trinkets. All made in China, of course. The products are of quality, though there are some low quality, but nothing we can't evaluate looking and touching. There are also many Chinese food restaurants scattered throughout the neighborhood.
