Bonnie Yeung's Top 5

Bonnie Yeung from Manchester's world-famous Yang Sing restaurant shares her top 5 things to do in her home town.


China Town

A major cultural and community hub in the heart of Manchester. It’s full of independent eateries and retailers.



Manchester has a massive variety of food on offer, especially from the independent restaurants. Favourites include Yang Sing, Salvi's and 63 Degrees.



Manchester has produced some of the greatest bands and artists, including Oasis, The Smiths and Joy Division, along with the Hallé Orchestra - one of the oldest orchestras in the country, housed in the Bridgewater Hall.



You get great big gothic buildings juxtaposed with really contemporary glass and metallic structures. Top ones to see include John Rylands Library, Manchester Central and Midland Hotel.



The nightlife has to be experienced for its variety and diversity. My favourite is Mojo's on Thursday and Sundays, but I also love the Northern Quarter and Manchester's many independent bars. If you want to put your heels on, head to Panacea.
