The Chinese Night Market: "The Chinese Night Market" Cairns Shopping Tip by dlandt

Cairns Shopping: 37 reviews and 63 photos

The shops on the Esplanade close fairly early, but if you still want to do a little shopping you can go to the Chinese Night Market. Closed during the day, the stalls here are mostly full of souveniers and stuff, but you can find arts and crafts of a higher caliber as well as certain sweets and delicacies. The waterfront end of the market has a group of fast food restaurants if you get hungry or poor.

What to buy: Postcards, knick knacks, beachwear, that kind of thing

What to pay: About average.

Directions: Between the Esplanade and Abbott St.
Theme: Local Craft

Review Helpfulness: 4 out of 5 stars
