Chinatown, Manila

(1.3/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Enjoy the atmosphere of the Far East at Chinatown. Wind through narrow passageways and several archways of distinct Chinese stylization, decorated with red lanterns. You'll pass stalls selling fresh vegetables, clothing, jewelry, spices, and medicine, as well as various knock-off gifts and gadgets. The crowds, vibrant decorations, and traditional and modern-style temples create a hectic atmosphere typical of Chinese neighbourhoods around the world. Recharge your batteries in one of numerous restaurants serving a wide range of Chinese food.

  • Binondo and Ongpin is authentic chinese area. Chinatown is a community of purely in chinese origin and trading very authentic. 
  • Bargains snooping in front of the main supermarket in small streets on the side of the pagoda

  • Be very careful in this location, many poor people live here, take care, don't show any visible signs of wealth.
