Almost every other big city seems to have a China town but Toronto’s China town is a very hip and happening place. It has a rich history beginning in 1878 with the first settlers who came to Toronto and has continued to preserve a taste of the orient within a busy city in Canada.
Decorated in vibrant yellows, reds and golds in the typical eastern way, the China town is sure to transform the streets of Toronto into mainland China as soon as you enter. The delicious smells wafting through the air and the sound of food sizzling in the woks are always tantalizing. Foodies will absolutely love this place. Besides this there are also several shops selling Chinese medicine that some regard as a healthier alternative to the harsh modern medicine.
Whatever be your views on it, one thing is for certain. Tourists will love to walk down the street and enjoy the awesome melange of cultures and traditions that is the Toronto China Town. There are a lot of places to shop and eat. There are also festivals like the Chinese New Year and the Toronto China town Festival which are worth visiting.
