Chinatown is a unique part of Toronto that creates the illusion that you are in another part of the world. There's so much to see - great selection of food and products. It's fun just to walk through Chinatown.

I visited a few shops here and they were small, dirty, cramped. There was one souvenir shop which was and fine and we purchased a few items. I only recommend visiting Chinatown is you have spare time.

I ran into a few nice murals but didn't encounter much that seemed interesting for a tourist; mostly it was just a Chinese community going about its business. Keep walking, though, and you'll eventually come to Kensington Market, which is more colorful.

Located in the Spadina Av, is a cool place to buy souvenirs, eat real Chinese food and spend a cool evening while you're walking through Toronto's downtown. Spent a lot of time here, and I can review that you only need one day to visit...More

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the
largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas
Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a
wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs
and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun.
Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces

Take the 192 Rocket to the subway and take the subway into Downtown. $3 compared to $22. No brianer. Use google maps to work out the stops - thats what we did and saved $80 for our round trip.

Yep I agree with the other comments, there was a great health food store just between Kensington and the Main Street in China Town.
