Melbourne, Australia Chinatown vibes

The Chinatown in Melbourne Australia in the central business district and is home to places of  business, worships,and restaurants  for the  home of the longest continuous chinese settlement. The chinese originally came for the Australian gold rush and stayed for a new life. This small section of Melbourne is home to the Chinese’s New Year festival which lasts for a few weeks every year with fireworks and the waking of the dragon.

Many people just pass by  Little Bourke Street on their hustle of the madness of the downtown. I can not say enough how amazing getting away from the droves of people can be. The hidden discovers to be found. Chinatown is missed often because there is so much to do in the Melbourne. You can walk down the gate that is the start of chinatown and see many different asian restaurants and shops.  Chinatown has grown  from one block with a gate on each end to now have grown to multiple blocks over the past few years. I learned that in American chinatowns, there are mostly Cantonese settled there. In Melbourne there is a much more diverse chinatown represented. Why is that good for you? Many more types of food to try and more mixing of cultures.

When you make it to the busy area of CBD of Melbourne make sure you take time out to walk the few blocks of chinatown. Even if it is just to see the beautifal buildings and for the free smells.
