Where is the best Chinatown? (excl. Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan)

Hello guys, I just want to discuss where is the best Chinatown all across the globe (excl. Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan). What I mean by the best is about the environment and atmosphere which are able to make you realize that you are there, in Chinatown!!

If it is possible, please post all of Chinatown pics in your country. You can share the pics about building and architectural things, foods, cultures, and lifestyle there...

Note:

This is a possitive discussion, so please no insult one country to another, or to the Chinese community. Thank You...

I can concur that the one in LA is dead. It's a ghost town after 5pm pretty much everyday.

Not because it's the biggest, but mainly because it's in San Francisco.

Some pictures of Chinatown-Manila, Philippines... This Chinatown is very authentic. Most of the people living here were original people from Fujian Province. Soon this will be a fake Chinatown as skyscrapers will stand among its land.

This is not Manila. And there are already high-rises in that area.

Medan (North Sumatera)/Indonesia, around Jalan Ahmad Yani and Jalan Dr. Sun Yat Sen (Sun Yixian) is a Fujian Town because they roots from Fujian Province (Southern China) and They Speak Min Nan Hua (Fujianese).

London

We have quite a modest China town in London, but plans were released yesterday with a 2million pound budget to open a dedicated tube station, add authentic gates and dragons etc and generaly improve the area.
The area is always busy and buzzing at night.
