This electric neighborhood of 100,000 people is not to be missed, and it's not hard to find: listen for the clack of mahjongg tiles and nose out the salty spicy squid.

Leave plenty of time to shop. Cheaper to buy here rather than at fisherman wharf and the pier. Mostly the shops sell the same sort of stock. Restaurants galore.

Check it out. So many different little shops with traditional Chinese snacks and trinkets. Great opportunity for the kids to learn about cultural diversity.

Amazing neighborhood, one of the most American places ever- a true melting pot Bring cash as some of the businesses don't take cards, and there are great bargaining deals

As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's
Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique
neighbourhood decorated with colourful shops, historic
streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs
awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on

gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or
practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands,

I usually ask to be dropped off at the 'dragon gate' at the bottom of the hill, then walk up past the shops and restaurants. I'm unsure of the name of the street, but all taxi and Uber drivers know where it is. I would give... More
