Chinatown.. Chung Wah Lane. 钟华巷



Built in the 1980's Chinatown in Northbridge has been enjoying a bit of a revamp lately in preparation for the completion of the Perth City Link project which will unite Northbridge with the CBD. It's pretty quiet through the day but we're hoping to have dinner there on Saturday, will be interesting to see the difference, have heard that in the evening it's mega busy, should be an excellent photo op! That's Aimee patiently waiting for me to finish, it's a good thing she has the umbrella I think her hair might have blended perfectly with the colourful surroundings :)


The entrance to Chinatown off Roe Street has been (t)arted up during FormPUBLIC 2015 by Sydney based artist, and so much more, Brett Chan who believes 'if maths is the language of the universe, then geometry is a visual representation of that voice'. Excellent! Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..

  4. Looks like a fun place! I do like Chinese food. Some of it. But I'm wondering how you got the Chinese lettering in your blog title? You must be especially smart!

  6. It's getting harder and harder to eat good Chinese food here. The Chinese take over allsorts of cafés and brasseries (and the food is usually not very good French cuisine) and most of the Japanese restaurants. Very few sushi places are actually still Japanese in Paris. Still, I'd love to have a Chinatown although all of Paris is now Chinatown! Cool shots Grace!

  7. I crashed exactly such a brolly a couple of weeks ago. Same pattern, black and white, huge, for two peeps. Ingo wasn´t happy.
    I´m curious, Grace, of the outcome of your Chinese evening!
    Do I crave Wok-Man now... Ingo´s on late shift but I got fresh salad. Buhuuu ;-)

  9. More fascinating things to learn about your beautiful city. Can't wait to hear about the dinner!

  10. Marvelous addition to the community--the gate, not the inn, necessarily, although it might very well be a happy inn. :-)

  11. Chinatowns by their nature should be slightly chaotic, busy and narrow. It would be difficult to build one from scratch. Thankfully all large Australian cities have existing Chinatowns.

  12. It all looks so strangely desolate. I'm sure that the atmosphere will be very different come evening. Nice that Aimee likes to coordinate her hair with local architecture!

  14. Glad you were able to include Aimee in the shot Grace, even if we aren't able to see her hair!

  15. It seems a gate is pretty much an essential in a Chinatown. I haven't photographed our gate in awhile.

  16. The entrance to many China Towns have very similar gates Grace. Look forward to seeing your shots of the buzzing night life.
