Follow your nose and walk to the various street food stalls selling all things Chinese. From satay BBQ skewers, to crispy spring rolls and tender dumplings, there’s a little something for every Chinese cuisine lover.
And, to make it a complete weekend outing, there’s also a Lychee Lounge, where you can chill with some Asian beer. But that’s not all! When you’re done binging sit back and enjoy traditional Chinese entertainment including Chinese Lion dance, music and ballet performances and cosplay.
