There are lots of shops/boutiques in Chinatown but the biggest shopping area would have to be Paddy’s Market and Market City, both housed in one building. This is where one can shop for food, souvenirs, trinkets, clothes, bags and shoes. In Market City you’ll find factory outlets of Esprit, Cotton On, Giordano, Preview, Rubi, Converse, etc. They also have a food court and lots of restaurants.
One of my favourite churches in Sydney is located at Chinatown. I sometimes hear the 5:30pm mass at St. Peter Julian’s Church after work.
Another area in Chinatown I frequent is the Capitol Square Shopping Centre. The Husband and I usually meet up here when he needs to buy computer parts. While waiting for him, I indulge in one of the best hotdogs I know at Harry’s Cafe de Wheels.
Sometimes I have a cup of coffee at Starbucks. It is worth mentioning this Starbucks branch because it is the biggest in (probably the whole of) Australia. It also has a different interior design–they have a bar-like table on the ground level and a long table on second level for people who need to study or for a group of people who need to meet over coffee.
