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.

I love the dim sum, the hub bub, the fresh veggies, theshops and the people. I feel as though I am in Hong Kong and love this grant ave and wish they could keep it this way

It seems like its just for locals now. In talking with my family I was not alone in feeling that we were truly outsiders. Pressured to buy, uncomfortable to browse. Not what it used to be!

We visited Chinatown on two different occassions and enjoyed each. First we stopped on our tour of the city, which included a drive through and stop at the fortune cookie factory. The next time we walked down from a visit to Coit Tower to shop...More

This was a fun way to spend a few hours. The main street is all gift shops and most of them have the same thing. There are tons of the little silk change purses, eyeglass cases, jewelry rolls for less than $10, many at $3....More

This China Town beat the one in LA hands down. So authentic and interesting. Starts at Grant St, but veer off on some of the side streets for the best Dim Sum!

Very crowded, I wouldn't drive there if you don't have to. Easy to get lost. Some food was questionable. Some stores were nice, but question some quality. I can now say I have been there but not sure if I will go back.

Great place to go for fun. Quite hilly so may want to wear tennis shoes for the walk.

Fun to see and walk around! Great tip we got from a taxi driver was to not eat in Chintown but go a couple blocks away and eat. The food is better and less expensive!

Especially all the little side streets and alleys. Forget Grant Street and all of the trinkets. Explore!

Chinatown
As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's
Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique

streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs
awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on
dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who
gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or
practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands,
