Chinatown, Buenos Aires

(2.7/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It only that stands out architecturally is the portal of access, brought from China e installed illegally on a street. The rest are supermarkets that sell typical things from china.

  • Look, I've been in some Chinatowns in my life, and this is the same as the other. Come on, she looks toward Tiger, so it's worth stopping to take a look for sure. Is a small street, full of shops of Chinese products, Chinese restaurants (some quite good) and other things more. Is always full, but at the same time is quite safe. It pays to know who you're going to Tiger or don't know a Chinatown, if not, I would advise focusing on other tours. PS: If you are looking for Asian food products in General, as Ramén, Korean Noodles, juices, teas, there's a market waaaay good for that.
