This area is one of the leading tourist destinations. Walking down the streets gives you an impression of the culture, the food and the tradition of Chinese people. The Architecture mixes various elements of Baroque and Victorian styles which are very colorfully decorated in February due to the Chinese New Year.
In between the temples and parks are restaurants, shops, and various street-stalls that sell trinkets related to Chinese culture.
If you are nearby make sure to visit the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple. There are many ceremonies you can attend and in the upper floor is a very nice library and cafe where you can read in a vast amount of books on special topics like Buddhism, religion, meditation and general Chinese culture.
