Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Chinatown (Toronto)

Family Tested

Dig in!

Any time we have visitors, I like to take them to Chinatown. Densely aligned signage is mainly in Chinese or Vietnamese (I think…) Most passers-by are of Asian descent. From the sidewalks you can see the chefs at work through the restaurants' windows and the offerings on the outdoor stalls. There are so many little trinkets in the stores that it is fun to allow a small budget for the kids to spend. Eating noodles with sticks or slurping tapioca balls from the bottom of bubble tea is also part of the exotic fun. When my friends and family have stamina left, I like to lead them through adjacent Kensington Market afterwards.
