Owner description: 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.

So much fun to walk here. Lots to see and people watch. Don't forget to go to the fortune cookie store, it was so interesting and you get free samples!

Great restaurants and lots of cheap shops selling quality things at cheap prices. The food available is superb and delicious.

This isn't really the China town you want to bring your kids to, anywhere near dusk.
Needles scattered in the alleys, ladyboys looking for dates, counterfeit everything being sold...
Avoid it..

My wife and I always enjoys visiting Chinatowns around the world. This is one of the biggest and best! There are many, many things to see! Just walking along and looking at the things around you here is great. Take some time and walk around. Eat sopme food! Buy some stuff to take home. Enjoy!

A must do stop on any visit to San Francisco. The streets are alive with food vendors, art, clothes stores and people! Fun place to spend the afternoon popping in and out of all the different shops.
