Some areas such as Chinatown still have a strong ethnicity in Australia. What is the gap between globalized places and localized places? Also, which concept is better to apply for such places? I claim it is difficult to apply either globalization or localization in terms of spatial sociology because both concepts have positive

It does not confine itself to the Spanish Colonial Era; Binondo boasts of the emergence of the Filipino identity, the harmonious relationship of the Filipino and the Chinese, and the country’s efforts at economic improvement.
