Glasgow Chinatown hotels
Glasgow's Chinatown, located in Cowcaddens, has become the home of the Chinese community, in Scotland, since the last thirty years. Aside from the authentic Chinese cuisine, which has long been a much sought after feature of the UK restaurant scene, traditional Chinese medicine and treatments like Acupuncture has attracted the attention of locals and tourist. Architectural elements feature traditional Chinese sculptures, stylized to appeal to travelers visiting Chinatown year round.
Many of the buildings here are quite elaborate, with carved wood interiors, embroidered banners, stone lions, votive hangings, jade fountains, cast-bronze altar vessels and incense burners.
Parade marches down the streets on the eve of Chinese New Year. Celebrations take place on a grand scale. Parade includes dozens of floats, multiple marching bands, entertainers, cultural groups, government officials, various dignitaries, and local business leaders. The parade’s theme is centered on ethnic diversity and Chinese Culture. The parade is a rich and diverse experience for people of all ages and ethnicities.
Visitors can find a huge range of cuisines to choose from. Other than that, Chinatown is the place to spice up one’s condiment collection with the authentic sauces, spices and herbs. Visitors can bulk up their collection of variety of exotic spices and medicines at the lowest prices.
The Chinatown is well connected to the town by public transportation. Nearby accommodation include Quality Hotel Glasgow, Devoncove Hotel Glasgow and Carlton George Hotel Glasgow which all offer discounted bookings for tourists during the year.
