Chinatown Food, Stories & Secrets Small-Group Tour

Price $65 AUD + BF Get tickets

Event description

Sydney’s Chinatown is full of secrets and excellent restaurants, and on this experience, you’re going to see and taste a bit of everything!

As you explore Chinatown, you’ll be introduced to several Chinese-Australians, starting from the first Chinese settler to arrive in Australia over 200 years ago. Along the way, you’ll sample a range of snacks from some of Chinatown’s best restaurants, with a minimum of 4 food stops included. All snacks are street foods that represent different parts of China and are designed to be eaten on the move.

This tour has a strong focus on uncovering Sydney’s long connection with China, and the contributions Chinese-Australians have made to the community. You’ll learn more in 2.5 hours about Australia’s Chinese community than you could possibly imagine, and “pub trivia” style games will keep it interactive and fun.

At the end of the tour, you’ll get a souvenir to take home, plus a great map and guide to Chinatown, covering all the best restaurants and what to order.

What we provide:

  • 2.5 hour guided activity
  • 4 or 5 regional Chinese street foods
  • Surprise souvenir
  • Photos shared after the tour
