There are so many fun places to shop for feng shui handicrafts and red envelopes. After enjoying the sights of the neighborhood including Columbus Park where the locals play mahjong, sing, play instruments and do tai chi exercises, there is a myriad of restaurants where you can choose to eat delicious Chinese treats of dim sum to crispy Peking duck.

One of my favorite places to visit is the famous Chinese department store, Pearl River, located in Soho. In addition to selling Chinese clothing, fabrics, teas and gifts, the second floor has an incredible variety of furniture, lamps and other home accessories.
