I really enjoyed the tea appreciation session. Vincent was really informative and full of knowledge about the chinese tea tradition. The highlight of the session was my return demonstration of chinese tea making.

Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.
