"Everything has it's beauty, not everyone sees it."
So Confucius, the 5th century BC philosopher, quipped to the Time Out team over Peking Duck and Tsing Taos at the Golden Century the other night. He was bang on as usual. In the hubbub of city living, it's easy to overlook the golden triangle of glazed fowl, yum cha palaces, noodle slurperies, karaoke bars, shopping arcades, herbal remedy outlets, art nooks and lit-up lanes of unique, exciting eastern promises that make up Chinatown.
So Time Out captured 24 hours in Chinatown to reveal the beauty that we might otherwise overlook.
