Chinatown, Toronto

Browse the market stalls that line the streets, checking out the range of imported goods, including food and drink, clothes, and trinkets. Stop for a bite to eat in one of the many atmospheric restaurants, or pick up a snack to go. Make Chinatown a part of your Toronto vacation plans using our Toronto tour itinerary builder app .

  • Worth knowing to Chinatown if you are interested in trying out oriental food (Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, Mongolian, etc.). Dining options are too big. Another attraction are the many souvenir shops, also with price and quality variables. In these stores in general you can find the same souvenirs sold in other parts of the city (magnets, mugs, key chains, cookies, maple syrup, plushes, t-shirts, etc.), but with a little more generally price into account.

  • We loved going to Chinatown and went quite a few times. We loved the choice of restaurants and there are many cheap shops for souvenirs. There is a nice atmosphere in the area and it was always busy.  more »

Where to stay in Toronto

Most visitors stay in the historic neighborhood of Old Toronto, as the central district offers unparalleled access to the best attractions in the city and several metro stations within walking distance. If you're looking for a different taste of Toronto, stay in the trendy neighborhoods of West Queen West or King West Village, popular for their nightlife, arts, and cafe scenes. You can embrace Toronto's multicultural charms by staying in Chinatown, perhaps the city's best location for foodies.
