It's nothing all that special. It's a little dirty and needs some minor fixing up. It's located very close to capital one center and most of the tour buses drive past it. I wouldn't walk out if my way to see it.

If you've seen other archs, you already know what this is. Washington's Chinatown is very small, there are a bunch of restaurants and nothing else. Go here only to eat Chinese.

Yep it's an arch. I'm staying right next to it so I took a pic. Good POI for navigating near by. It's the gateway to China Town. Plenty of restaurants to choose from.

The Chinatown Archway is a tourist spot, but it also notes the DC Chinatown neighborhood. I’ve seen the archway during the day and night time. I prefer the night time, as it looks striking.

Interesting and nice, but not unique to DC only. Not a large area or authentic Chinese business. Actually, most business are not even Chinese. A one block should not be considered a "Town." Archway and crosswalk with Chinese horoscope is nice.

Just a free observation as you enter or leave Chinatown. Worth the trip especially if you are looking for a delicious lunch or dinner.

Always such a welcoming sign to Chinatown in DC, the Chinatown Friendship Archway is the most striking and enduring symbol. It was built in 1986 and was said to be the largest in the world when it was constructed. It was designed by local architect...More
