This was definitely worth the short walk - singing birds in cages are still quite common in Chinese homes, though the younger generation don't seem to do it these days. This is typically the hobby of the more mature man - you see them gathering in groups debating the virtues of various birds and listening to the singing.
You can buy birds, cages, seeds... even bags of live crickets to feed to the birds.
It is a fascinating glimpse into a more traditional culture and very interesting. We were befriended by a friendly visiting family who explained what was going on.
Well worth a visit!
