New Chinatown [or second Chinatown] in Cyrildene, Johannesburg, has grown exponentially over the past decade.¬†It has taken the reigns from Old Chinatown on Commissioner Street in the Joburg CBD, to become the new hub for the Chinese community to shop, eat and work.¬†Chinese immigrants in Johannesburg, South Africa frequent this and other ‘Chinese’ areas to get pieces of their cultural identities in this migrant city.
