Chinatown was one of the highlights of our long weekend and I was actually pleasantly surprised by it! I found the size to be just right...not to overwhelming, and easy to walk through and see everything. Maybe not as many open-air, authentic market spaces, but...More

In many ways this is a typical China town experience. Great original food and many souvenirs. However, there are also many made in China generic goods that were unexpected, from electronic to clothing. Worth a stroll and stop in for dim sum or coffee along...More

As a child, I used to go here all the time with my parents whenever we visited Toronto. It was always exciting to go to such a bustling "foreign" area being exposed to people, culture, food, environment that I wasn't used to growing up in...More

I received a tip from a friend that the cheapest souvenir you can get in Toronto must be from Chinatown, and yup she's right. A simple Toronto fridge magnet is sold at only $1.25 each !!! Undoubtedly, the whole area may seem run down but...More

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the
largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas
Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a
wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs
and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun.
Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces

Take the 192 Rocket to the subway and take the subway into Downtown. $3 compared to $22. No brianer. Use google maps to work out the stops - thats what we did and saved $80 for our round trip.
