Oh for god's sake...It's obvious a manc would vote manc on an opinion poll...morestoreysplease said:I love Accy's decision - obviously based on experiencing all the contenders, and making his final choice!
Liverpool's Chinese Arch is now the biggest arch outside of China and was built after Manchester's that's why the information is out of date,it was built in Shanghai and was given to Liverpool as a gift to celebrate the oldest Chinatown in Europe and for the twinning of our cities.EarlyBird said:According to some sources Manchester's Chinese arch is the largest and most intricate traditional imperial chinese arch outside China. Don't know how true it is, but I know it's true when compared to San Francisco's. Lots of cities have Chinese arches, but the vast majority of them aren't authentic imperial arches.
Newcastle's is 11.3 metres and Liverpool's is 15 metres.Leeds No.1 said:Doesn't Newcastle have an established China Town now- the arch also according to some sources is the biggest outside China. Well that shows reliability of China Town info.
I've only ever been to three Chinatowns... Manchester, Liverpool and Toronto. Out of them Toronto is the best but it isnt in the UK so I voted I Manchester. Liverpool's isnt that good cos its too quiet and feels very out of the way.morestoreysplease said:Accy is a lad from Lancashire who's not really been anywhere yet, so I find it tiresome when votes are cast without experience. I've not voted.
