The Basics

The best way to explore Chinatown is on foot, and highlights of a walking tour include the Buddhist Tzong Kuan temple and the monumental arch that stands at the corner of Juramento and Arribeños. Bike tours of Buenos Aires’ northern neighborhoods also often make a stop in Chinatown on the way to nearby Palermo and Nuñez.

Personalized Taxi Tour of Buenos Aires
This tour was fantastic! My parents arrived in Buenos Aires a few days before me and spent time on one of the hop-on, hop-off busses. I needed to catch up, and they wanted to revisit a few locations that had not provided enough time for good pics. This seemed like a good solution. Fernando picked us up right at the door of our Home Away apartment and drove us all over town, to see only the places we were interested in. At each place, he let us out with unlimited time to explore, and told us where we could find him when we were ready. In some places, he joined us exploring, but only after asking if it was ok. It was great to have him walk along and help provide info about the places we were looking at! We didn't speak much Spanish, and he didn't speak much English - but he is fluent in Google Translate and it was never a problem. He also had recorded info in English in the taxi that gave us snippets about any of the places we were stopping or passing. To top it off, lunch was included at a wonderful BBQ place that the locals frequent - the atmosphere was great and the food was the best we had during our whole stay in Buenos Aires! Fernando also made himself available via Whatsapp before I arrived, and was helpful answering questions about currency exchange and anything else I wanted to know. This guy is the best! Thanks Fernando!!!

Dining in Chinatown

For most locals, the main reason to visit Chinatown is the food, and the streets are lined with family-run restaurants and street food vendors. This is the go-to place for authentic Chinese food, but there are also restaurants serving Japanese, Thai, and Korean cuisine. Swap your steak knife for chopsticks (palitos) and enjoy home-cooked delicacies like pad thai, black bean tofu, steamed dumplings, and duck pancakes.
