Review of Chinatown

If you've been to Chinatown in New York, San Francisco or any other major city you can certainly pass on this one. It has the usual restaurants and store but is not worth a special trip.

This is not really a tourist attraction, but it is nice if you are passing by to visit. It has a lot of bakeries, restaurants, and markets.

There are no touristy gift shops or stands here. Just lots of restaurants, bakeries, food stalls and markets. Prices of items are reasonable. Wish more people would visit, just to keep this Chinatown alive.

Good place for inexpensive Cantonese food and to buy fresh veggies, especially Asian. Very crowded and busy, but not very pretty. Not worth a special visit.
