Visiting Toronto's Chinatown can be an exciting experience for anyone. The crowds of people and the buzzing activity add to the captivating atmosphere of Toronto's downtown Chinatown. Elegantly stroked Chinese characters grace store and street signs. Oriental shops and markets with exotic fruits and vegetables spill onto the sidewalk, where grocers literally sing as they invite the visitors to browse their selection.
