Pop by a wetmarket and look at what's up for sale as you jostle with housewives and compete with the locals for fresh produce.

These include...Frogs,Eels,Crabs and Tortoises amongst other things.........
Really enlightening and an eye-opener..even for me!:)
Sorry...no recipes to offer here!

See what a Chinese tea appreciation session accompanied by an opera performance is like,shop for Chinese antiquities and get a whiff of the Chinese herbs on sale.

Food stops at Food Street for alfresco meals and Chinese pastries and homemade tarts.

Learn about the rich cultural history of old Chinatown at the Chinatown Hheritage Centre-48 Pagoda Street.
*This is a must and highly interactive!Lovely mutil sensorial journey recreated down to the last detail...

Neighbouring lanes offer an interesting mix of art galleries and super souveniours at 'wow' prices!
