If you’re looking for adventure, phone accessories, strange herbs, delicious Chinese cuisine, or just want to visit a foreign country without leaving Sydney, then Chinatown is the place for you.

Located in Haymarket between Central Station and Darling Harbor, Chinatown is centered around Dixon Street, a pedestrian thoroughfare full of Chinese restaurants and shops. If you brave the unfamiliar signs, the labyrinths of stores and the enthusiastic street hawkers, you’re in for a rewarding experience.

The Sydney Chinatown is the country’s largest Chinatown, and the place to go for authentic Chinese food, especially if you’re looking for fried octopus balls, Dragon’s Beard Candy, freshly squeezed Sugar Cane Juice, Peking Duck or Tsing Tao.

At the southern end of Chinatown, next to Hay Street, you’ll find a large complex called Market City, which contains a modern shopping centre, restaurants (including an 800+ seat Yum Cha Restaurant), boutique shops, a large indoor entertainment complex called ‘Galaxy World’, and the Haymarket Paddy’s Markets. If you’re in the mood for a film, check out Media Asia on Dixon Street, a great place to check out the latest and greatest films from East Asia.

The best time to visit is on Friday nights between 4 and 11pm, during Chinatown’s weekly Night Market.
