New York's Chinatown would be considered one of the oldest in the world that has still maintained the same "look" as when they first started. Names of restaurants may change, you can still see and smell the familiar original "Chinatown" outside China. It is situated...More

I've always been a fan of Asian cuture, so perhaps Chinatown resonated more with me than most. However, I found the streets fascinating, from the people who don't speak English to the Chinese on the street signs. Lots of cool things to do, see, buy,...More

What a blast! The colors, smells, noise, food, and vibrance of Chinatown assault all five senses in this absolutely must-see venue in New York City. Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, Singapore, and other parts of Southeast Asia immerse and blend into one great thriving Chinese community,...More

Chinatown used to be a much livelier place. Flushing is now the new Chinatown of NYC. This Chinatown has great restaurants and shopping. I like the meat markets with the whole ducks hanging in the window. Still a great place for a nice walk.

A really discombobulating experience - in a couple of blocks, you go from the USA to China - the sights, sounds and smells suddenly change completely! This area, although in parts touristy, does still feel like it is for the locals as well, with many...More

Apart from the many good, cheap restaurants Chinatown is pretty dirty and packed with cheap shops. Getting hassled by dodgy watch salespeople is no fun either. Maybe just come, eat and go to SOHO.

Chinatown
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where

The best place that I go to is right across the street from Joe's Shanghai restaurant which is Foot Heaven at16 Pell Street. I go there when I pull my back out or need a good foot massage. They are very reasonable too.

Chinatown is located in Lower Manhattan and is adjacent to Little Italy. I would suggest taking Broadway to Canal Street.
