  • I had heard of "a" Chinatown wanted to believe it. Once wrong bent then by car and at once it right in the middle. Unfortunately it was somewhat late, so that I could enter all transactions, but the costs incurred by... Then the many small restaurants just nice, even courage, go in and order.

  • It is less impressive as the visit of Chinatown in New York, but it's still a short trip into another world. Everywhere is Chinese lettering and a flair of Asia. Interesting to see and culinary here you can experience a lot!

  • The Chinatown of Milan practically focused on a very long road where Chinese shops and eateries abound. I tried a few restaurants takeout and enjoyed it tremendously. You should also visit the Chinese supermarkets filled with bizarre foods. Take a walk and you will not regret it!
