Neighborhood: City/ Square Mile
Overview

Located in the Limehouse region of London around Gerrard Street, this is the primary section of town to which residents of Hong Kong immigrated after World War II. Here you're likely to find some of the best Chinese cuisine the city has to offer, along with some pretty cheap souvenirs. At night, this place comes alive with stores, supermarkets, and shops all throwing their wares out on the street for curious passer-bys to gaze at. Despite the stories of Opium dens and slum housing, London's Chinatown has now emerged as one of the more happening parts of the city.
