The buildings made me feel like I was in China. There were little shops that sold chinese items. I wasn't hungry so I didn't eat anything. If you have some time to kill, stop by and grab a bite (maybe the food is good). But...More
There is an old grany selling a kind of traditional chinese snack-rice cake (in Chinese: ZongZi) at the side of the chinatown closed to the city center. The rice cake is very good and authentic. Originally from mainland China, I did not have such delicated...More
It's mind boggling as to why there are so many negative reviews on Chinatown. Sure, it may not be the best Chinatown in the world, but it's far from being the worst. Centered around Broadway betw. College and Bernard, there are enough shops, restaurants, and...More
My husband and I enjoyed walking along Broadway; there are a lot of little shops that sell little nic-knacks. One side of Broadway has a lot of restaurants and the other side has fruit vendors, jewelry stores and the smaller retail stores. We tried the...More
Right, so it doesn't have the beauty of San Francisco's or the cozy fit of London's, but it's got a dark, sexy vibe all it's own - right out of Raymond Chandler and Roman Polanski. Most of the best restaurants (Yang Chow, The Empress) are...More
We expected something amazing since we'd heard all about LA's big Chinatown and everything. We got there and all we saw were dirty, littered sidewalks and homeless people sleeping on the ground. There were some stores, but they were closed. The whole section of the...More

I'd say this is average, having been to several large Chinese communities, Chinatown is much more geared towards the "tourist" types than those who want to visit a more authentic Chinese community (which can be found in Cerritos, Alhambra, Rowland Heights etc). That being said,...More

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 good part is that the transit system takes you to so many areas, we felt safe, and used it as we did not rent a car. Also, the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce may be able to assist with options. I hope this helps. Good luck!
