Behind the Chinese gates on the Wagenstraat, you'll enter Asia. You'll find a rich variety of Asian restaurants, tokos, supermarkets, acupuncturists and furniture shops: a mix of Chinese, Japanese and Indonesian cultures.
The streets are filled with an attractive mix of retail, catering and service industries. A number of modern Asian restaurants have sprung up on the new Rabbijn Maarsenplein behind the Nieuwe Kerk. Residents and visitors alike have found their way to Chinatown to experience the exotic products on sale there, enjoy a delicious and affordable Asian meal or to purchase Asian-style accessories for their homes and gardens.
The Hague is working hard to further strengthen the profile of this exceptional district in the city centre by placing Chinese gates at the entrances to the district and organising special events like the Chinese New Year and Moon Festival.
Chinatown is located next to The Hague's main shopping area and is easily accessible by car (the Grote Markt, Gedempte Gracht and Veerkade parking garages are close by). The underground tram stations on the Grote Marktstraat are in close proximity, as are the bus and tram stops on the Spui.
