China Town Sydney, AU
Where there are Chinese living
outside China, there are Chinatowns.
All over the world
Chinatowns have been established in major cities, occupying
a substantial portion of the city.
Countries in South East
Asia, East Asia, Europe, North America,
Australia, and even
South Africa have Chinatowns.
These establishments usually
center on commercial areas
where Chinese men put up
businesses with their local wives.
It is a well known fact
that for the Chinese where they have found prosperity is
where they will stay for the rest of their lives.
And so, these Chinatowns have
been in existence for at least a hundred years. You will
know that you are in Chinatown when you see
a Paifang, an
archway that literally means “neighborhood maker”.
