24 Hours In… Toronto.
1pm: A Taste Of China – One of the best things about Toronto is that you can feel like you’ve travelled around the world in a day without leaving the city. Among my favourite cultural areas is Chinatown, which is a great place to explore in the afternoon and is always an exciting experience, even if you’ve been to China. There are countless restaurants, fruit stands, shops, historical monuments, spas and karaoke bars for you to check out, and even though it can get congested at times (especially on summer weekends), there’s always a laid-back vibe. Take a tour to learn about Chinese culture and traditions, and if you’re lucky enough to be there during one of the annual festivals, be sure to participate in any of the many activities. Like most Toronto events, the Chinatown festivals are free to attend. Talk about a bargain! [Photo: dbking/Wikimedia Commons]
