It’s always a good time to visit Sydney, especially during Chinese New Year when you can experience one of the city’s biggest and brightest cultural events.
As well as all the festival happenings in and around Chinatown, the area is a great shopping spot with Paddy’s Markets for knick-knacks, clothes and all sorts of weird and wonderful items or head to World Square for on-trend fashion. You’re just a hop, skip and a jump from Queen Victoria Building, The Galeries, Mid-City, Strand Arcade and Pitt Street Mall where you’ll find the best of Sydney’s shopping.
You’ll be spoilt for choice for food in Chinatown and beyond – from small bites to big banquets, street food to five-star dining. Find the perfect food spot for you at Sydney.com.
When you’ve taken in the sights and sounds of Chinatown make sure you step out and sample the rest of Sydney. The city’s many iconic buildings and views will no doubt be high on your list, but for a taste of Sydney the way locals live visit the city’s villages, from designer-led Surry Hills, to hip and happening Newtown; elegant cafés in Potts Point to the theatre district in Walsh Bay, there’s something to suit all tastes.
