Ah, delicious Haymarket – home to the walk-through supermarket and food court that is Chinatown and home to many a mega-musical, the Capitol Theatre. The suburb which stretches from Railway Square to Darling Harbour also counts amongst its sites the soon-to-be-demolished Entertainment Centre, the start of Sydney's only light rail line and the Golden Water Mouth Tree, installed in 1999. But you're here because you followed your nose to the precinct around Sussex and Dixon streets: so hit up late-night legend Golden Century, the great and always packed BBQ King, Seoul Ria for DIY Korean barbecue and the Sussex Centre food court. Yum cha is at Marigold, and if you're looking for a bright and cheap phone cover, well Paddy's Markets is your go-to. Feel like a beverage? Hit the Civic Hotel – OK, it's a little on the border of Haymarket – and go late so you can join the party at the Civic Underground.
