  • In Chinatown is all kinds of objects and at good prices. There are places to eat but I recommend to be careful when choosing a place

  • I had the opportunity to visit this place three times during my visit to Lima, the truth, is something overwhelming by the number of people who visit the place daily, however, it is a wonderful experience. Food, decoration objects, memories are really beautiful, if you like all the wave from the East you will enjoy visiting this place.
