Chinatown (otherwise known as Haymarket) is a busy Sydney hub. A hub filled with plenty and promise. While we're on the P's, and a favourite word of the Chinese - shouldn't we also say 'prosperity?' Absolutely.
Such good food to also admire
Time to feel great, and feel like you're away from the other type of hustle and bustle in Sydney City for a reason.
Right near Market City. Near the trams.
There are some great things to do at Sydney's Chinatown. Who would say no to factory shopping, in tandem with some cheap and clever treats. Market City sells some top brand items at factory prices, with a great food court to boot. Nearby is home to Paddy's Markets - now a market being run on a full-time basis, with an abundance of souvenirs and home items. Not to mention iPod, iPhone and iPad covers all married together.

Even though the Sydney Monorail came down on the 30th of June 2013, Sydney's Chinatown is still home to the Sydney Entertainment Centre. This venue hosts large scale seminars, church services and concerts to name.
About to tuck into some delicious Yum Cha
As you know, Sydney Fun is not a food related site - however must I say that this area of Sydney is a great area to eat out at. Fantastic for Yum Cha in particular. Otherwise those cheap, self service bakeries enjoy a flock of hungry herds at all times. Food will come to your beck and call.
Right outside the Sydney Entertainment Centre
Once you're full and content, there is always Darling Harbour nearby for some more Sydney Fun. If you want some China immersion experiences in culture and pride, then a visit to The Chinese Gardens is also divine.

The Sydney Entertainment Centre has recently had it’s very last performance, with Elton John. A far more modern building will now take place in that space at last. One can of cause catch the Light Rail from Central Station to Chinatown. And Paddy’s is only open 5 days a week, from Wednesdays (when only some stalls are operating) to Sunday.
