Chinatown is the best spot to get cheap eats and souvenirs in Sydney. Centred around the Dixon Street pedestrian mall in Haymarket, Chinatown is buzzing with food and shopping options. Market City contains a modern shopping centre, restaurants and the Wednesday to Sunday flea market, Paddy's Markets. Also located in Chinatown in the picturesque Chinese Garden of Friendship.
Tip: Paddy's Markets have a great range of souvenirs, discount clothing and fresh produce. Catch the train from Kings Cross to Central Station and from there it is a short walk.
