As for an update on Chinatown Plaza, while it’s true that the much-anticipated improvements and maintenance haven’t started yet, there are still plenty of reasons to pay this lively spot a visit.

So, even though there are a few bumps in the road, Chinatown Plaza continues to offer a lot to explore and enjoy.
Nestled within the vibrant Shanghai Plaza in Las Vegas Chinatown, a bustling shopping and dining destination that encapsulates the essence of this cultural enclave, it’s no wonder why this plaza reigns as the busiest in Chinatown.
