Europe's oldest Chinatown is situated a little away from the the city center and can be spotted by a spectacularly high Chinese arch at its entrance. Marking the gateway into the Chinese community, a team of Shanghai workman erected the arch in just 90 days. This magnificent example of Chinese art contains 200 hand carved dragons which include 188 traditional dragons and 12 pregnant ones symbolizing good fortune. The intricate design and bold colors used in the arch continue with the symbolism of good fortune, harmony and growth. An excellent choice of restaurants can be found in Chinatown, all of which provide authentic Chinese cuisine and very friendly service. Stroll around the colorful quarter to fully experience the culture.
