Wander along relaxing streets that are off-limits to cars and stroll past the many Chinese Assembly Halls, such as the Cantonese Chinese Congregation with its impressive main altar, and the Hainan Chinese Congregation, which serves as a memorial to the 107 Hainan Island merchants that were killed during the reign of Emperor Tu Duc after they were mistaken for pirates.
