ChinaTown… in Buenos Aires

After spending a great time in Chile, time to return to Argentina’s capital Buenos Aires. Since I’ve visited already most museums, sqaures and other touristic hotspots… why not explore a less known neighbourhood in Buenos Aires,El Barrio Chino. Yes, Buenos Aires has her own Chinatown and quite easy reachable. Catch the Linea Mitre train(pay easilywith Sube Card) at the Retiro railwaystation and get off on Belgrano station. When u get out of the train you will notice immediately El Barrio Chino characteristics… the typical Chinese and Taiwanese restaurants, grocery stores and a Buddhist Temple.

It’s a great spot to spend some time, try asian food… buy your stuff in the specialized stores, watch the great graffiti, El Barrio Chino is only a few blocks big, you wouldn’t get lost:). Visit El Barrio Chino in the morning, and head on to Tigre(Linea Mitre) and you gonna have an awesome day out of Buenos Aires.
