Exotic cultural shopping and dining experiences abound in Winnipeg’s historic little Chinatown. Formed in 1909, this is the neighbourhood to visit if your taste buds savour the flavours of Cantonese, Szechwan, Huaiyang and Shandong cuisine.
There are also plenty of shops filled with spices, teas and ancient herbal medicines to browse through. Completed in 1987, the gardens at the Dynasty and Mandarin buildings offer visitors a tranquil and exotic spot for an outdoor lunch or place to reflect. The Dynasty Building's many roofs are a symbol of good luck, while the Mandarin Building is decorated with a replica of the Imperial Nine Dragons mural. The ornately decorated street bridge connecting the Dynasty and Mandarin buildings welcomes visitors to the area.
