Sunday Snapshot: Melbourne’s Chinatown Precinct


Almost every Australian city has a Chinatown. Melbourne’s Chinatown is by far the most exciting.

Centred around Little Bourke Street, this precinct features some of Melbourne famous laneways. It’s a hive of activity during the day and turns out some pretty interesting street entertainment at night. With red lantern lined streets, delicious yum cha and cheap beauty treatments, you really do feel like you’ve stepped out of Australia and into China!

The latest craze in dining experiences at Melbourne’s Chinatown is ordering your meal at the table via tablet. I recently had an interesting dining experience at China Red – the tablet is fixed to the wall next to your table, anytime you want something simply select it from the tablet and send it off to the kitchen. Before you know it, your meal is being delivered to the table, hot and fresh. A word of warning though; most people tend to get a little carried away with the novelty of ordering via tablet and order way too much – it’s easy to end up feeling very full!

    I think that it is so interesting to see the different Chinatowns around the world and compare. It seems like every major city has one.

      I agree, Chinatown seems to offer a sense of familiarity in a strange city.
