Early Chinese activity in Wellington historically centred around Haining Street and Frederick Street, which was unofficially known as Wellington's Chinatown, or 'Tong Yan Gaai' (Chinese People's Street).
Although this wiki focuses on the greater Wellington area, there will be some content from further afield, which has a connection with the history of Chinese in Wellington.
