This is a hidden gem and such a fun place to visit. It's fascinating to watch the little old ladies expertly wrap and fold the cookies. There's delicious samples, a charge of 50 cents to take a photo and for $1.50 you can write your...More

This factory is tucked in an alley off of a main street in Chinatown, but just look for the lines of tourists, and you won't miss it. The extent of sightseeing is the ability to see old Chinese ladies hand-forming fortune cookies by taking the...More

As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's
Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique
neighbourhood decorated with colourful shops, historic
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,
