  • We toured the center of Lima to visit the different attractions among which we liked the neighborhood very nice especially since you can see a wide variety of products and objects of Chinese culture, Chinese decorations are inspired by this culture, also are several restaurants that sell Chinese food, what also caught our attention was the Chinese horoscope we saw on the floor , we bought some souvenirs to remember our visit to this place where pay you homage to the Chinese, very interesting culture.

  • It is located near the Plaza de Armas of Lima, is a few blocks away where the photos can look like, you enter through a Chinese-style gate. You can see some local sale of Community products and typical dishes. There is much more to do. I recommend do it tomorrow because no I thought it was a very safe place.
