A stroll around Calgary would not be complete without a walk through China town. The variety of restaurants and homes all with familiar Asian symbols , shapes and colors and of course the Panda Bear flags. Small size China town for someone who hails from...More

Chinatown has an excellent location in a quieter part of downtown, right next to the Bow River, and so celebrations down here can be quite lovely. This time, they shut a good section of Riverfront Avenue, and had a zillion food trucks serving up quite...More

We Visited China Town whilst in Calgary, there is a nice little market and everyone was very nice and welcoming. The area seemed quite run down in general but you could see there was a lovely sense of community spirit.

A compact Chinatown as they go but some nice quirky shops. Nice smells from the cafés and restaurants. Very short walk from downtown Calgary.

Although this place is relative safe and clean, it doesn't really have the chinatown feel. But you can visit if you have the time. There are of course quite a lot of restaurants and eateries here. It is also near the bridge overlooking the river...More

Most Calgarians will have some sort of fond memory of a great meal or lunch in Chinatown, or of something seen while walking or driving through. But compared to other Chinatowns in other cities, even Canadian ones, there isn't a lot to do here except...More
