Description

Streets packed end to end with stalls and knick-knacks of every kind. Here a pair of ready-made clogs, there steaming hot buns. Sticky cakes, exotic fruits, sweetmeats - it's really a food paradise on the streets of Chinatown. Enjoy the fragrance of Chinese tea, ginseng and herbal eggs. If you're brave, we'll even help you find your way about a very slippery wet market. Check out paper cars, houses, 'handphones', and even lingerie - all part of an ancient Chinese funeral ritual. We'll also introduce to you the Yins and Yangs of Chinese traditional medicine. And finally, we might just show you where to get those ready-made clogs and that steaming hot bun you've been craving for.
