I had huge expectation when went to Chinatown but felt a little frustrated. I still recommend the tour, but theres not much different to see. If you like exotic food, you'll find there. Souvenirs are so cheap, it's unreal. Like 4 tshirts for 10 dollars...More

Visiting Chinatown is like you see in the movies. Bustling of life, dirty and people everywhere. Lots of places to eat and things to see. Worth the visit

If you are looking for the unusual you can find it here. There are many little shops of interesting exotic Asian wares and foods. It borders Little Italy and is a great place to see the many sides of New York City.

Interesting people and activities in this area. A lot of outdoor shopping and many people speaking in their native tongue. Will stick to main route from now on.

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where

I'm not sure about massaging per se. I believe they have reflexology places or something. You can get a massage in the Berkshire Mall in Reading though.

Chinatown is located in Lower Manhattan and is adjacent to Little Italy. I would suggest taking Broadway to Canal Street.
