It's nowhere as impressive as San Francisco's Chinatown but I think it's worth visiting. There are many good restaurants, markets, and souvenir shops. If you like dim sum you can find it there especially at Ocean Seafood restaurant. If you go on Sundays, be prepared...More

I would not stay in this area. It is nice but not worth spending more than a few hours.

We didn't stay close to Chinatown, but I am sure you could find a hotel that would meet your expectations. May I suggest to Google hotels close to the area; Tripadvisor, also, could narrow down the selections for you. The... More
