A blast of culture, Chinatown is primarily a Buddhist-Taoist area, filled with shops and temples.
A bustling marketplace with dilapidated buildings and narrow streets and cul-de-sacs, Chinatown is a great place for photo-ops, due to the cultural influences of Buddhism on all the buildings. The biggest attractions apart from the cheap commodities and delectable fusion cuisine are the Kong Co Kong Tik Cun Ong Temple, which is one of the largest Buddhist temples in Indonesia, and Pasar Pabean which is the marketplace that links Chinatown to the Arab Market. Every evening, a fish market opens in the area, and locals flock there to buy fresh produce.
