  • I love going to Chinatown, shopping for interesting foods, incense and of course Don Mee's for Dim Sum!  more »
  • Chinese played a difficult construction Canada construction praise the big sign has hung in this Chinese city. You can realize the scale of the China town along left and right from the main street through the tourist bus also. Feel the history or shopping in this vibrant city, and enjoy.

  • Mostly what went well or ingredients for four. Advantage is that I can not see more Oriental delicacies from the ruckus, the downside is that I am not good at English and Chinese, I do not know what this is Choi per food are also a lot of apparel appeal.
