Favorite thing: Every major city boasts a Chinatown. According to my guide book there has been a Chinatown in London since the 19th century and originally concentrated around the East End docks at Limehouse, where the opium dens were sited.

Check out the following website for maps and information about Chinatown : http://www.chinatownlondon.org/directory_overview.php

Fondest memory: Contains scores of restaurants, shops selling oriental produce, trinkets and souvenirs.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
