  • Crossing the narrow streets to the temple Dharma bakti a great atmosphere of locals who make their market, everyone smiled at us and we said hello, we even feel an attraction for them! Fun experience!

  • I personally only spend a very short time through china Town since not much of attractions for us especially if you live in Asian countries. 
  • Always nice to visit an area to see what it is like. There are many chinese medicine shops with food and clothing stalls.
