I was there at 8:30 a.m., and it was not yet open... Chinatown doesn't seem to function at all in the morning, with only a couple coffee shops and restaurants open in the a.m. That said, architecturally speaking, it remains the second most "Chinese" building...More

I have lived in Calgary on my life. Dragon city mall has been one of my favourites to visit with my friends. My friend came from Edmonton and this was the first place I want to bring her. You can spend 3 to 5 hours...More

I'm not sure if its the recession or if downtown Calgary on a whole that is sliding down, but I was underwhelmed to say the least by this place. There were a couple of restaurants and a small Chinese bakery that had great goodies for...More

Wandered into this mall while exploring China Town. A 'budget' mall, maybe worth a few minutes of time while in China Town.

We came upon this mall while wandering through china town. There isn't much there, just shop Chinese shops which have produce that seems to have come directly from China. It seemed popular with the locals of china town. No need to make an effort to...More

I stumbled into this mall because it is located across from the hotel I stayed in. This little gem is like the indoor swap meets we have here in the states. You can find really cheap prices for everyday items; purses, shoes, jackets, stuff and...More
