      So yeah, anyone's got a Chinatown near them? Speak up or raise your hand. I do and I like to shop in there too. I like to get some Chinese styled fries, and ramen noodles and some other Asian cakes too. I like to get my cutesy and adorable things from there too: Hello Kitty, Rilakkuma, and etc.

      Oh is there one in New York? Another reason for me to want to visit there :D

      Can't say we have one here at all which is a shame as it sounds like a great place.

      I don't have a China Town near where I live but there are a few in Australia. The one I have been to is in Broome. Chinatown has been a flourishing part of Broome since the discovery of the world’s biggest pearl shell in the late 1800s sparked a massive migration comparable to a gold rush. Now it is as popular but with tourists. Has so much atmosphere.

      There aren't any China towns here, but I've been to the one in New York, it's pretty sweet.

      I do have to travel a long way. I think the nearest would be about 1000 klms away in Sydney.

      Everyone should take the opportunity to go to one in their life time.
