Located at Arch and 10th, this gateway is a beautiful, welcoming entranceway into the Chinatown district. It is similar to the archway that leads to the Boston Chinatown, but a little more elaborate in design. Great place for a photograph. Chinatown is a lively neighborhood...More

Chinatown itself was not worth it. The gate was the best part. Dont go out of your way but if your in the area you should stop and look at it. Take 5 minutes and admire it. Take a few pictures of it and keep...More

Even though it’s Chinatown there seem to be other Asians such as Vietnamese in the area as well. The gate is pretty but in a crowded intersection and not much more than a quick photo op. Maybe it has important symbolic meaning that I’m missing....More

We were exploring the downtown part of Philly, and decided to make our way over to Chinatown, coming through the Friendship Gate. Take a few pictures and explore away beyond the gate.

Interested in Chinatown then it’s nice. Evening time when we were there and bins outside many places so a little dingy to look at. Always nice to walk through a Chinatown in any city. The history signs were nice.

Nothing special. Nice to see as you pass. Would not seek it out. Chinatown is average and a bit scruffy.

We have seen a few of these spectacular gates in various cities. Some are better maintained than others. So, it was good to see this one looking splendid in the sunshine. In truth, whatever the condition they make an impressive sight.

Flubbed my photo by putting my finger in the lens area. Well worth the stop to take a photo. Next time, will go into Chinatown if we have time.

Entirely assembled by hand with no nails or glue, the friendship gate makes for a great photo op. Afterwards enjoy the cuisine of the neighborhood that surrounds you!
