  • Very fun to walk around and look at the China-inspired buildings. A lot to see. Definitely gives a feeling of China. Beautiful. 
  • I really like it, a lot of things to see and buy. People are friendly also. Prices are good and the food awsome. 
  • He visitado chinatown en otros países, y este es bastante ordenado y limpio. Cuenta con variedad de restaurantes donde comer. Comidas sabrosas y obvio, típicas de Asia.
