It's nowhere as impressive as San Francisco's Chinatown but I think it's worth visiting. There are many good restaurants, markets, and souvenir shops. If you like dim sum you can find it there especially at Ocean Seafood restaurant. If you go on Sundays, be prepared...More

This area was a little underwhelming; there are lots of knick-knack shops, but it's generally people getting on with their day to day so once you've taken a look at the main square, you can jump on the metro to your next stop.

Chinatown will always be an iconic and historical part of Los Angeles. This was my daughters first time visiting Chinatown. When I lived in LA, my family always loved coming here to experience the asian cultural aspects, the food and definitely the shopping! Some of...More

Went here to see Chinatown, but this was just an ordinary neighbourhood with some chineese lanterns. Try New York in stead.

We had a nice walk and visited the shops. However, compared to San Fran you will be disappointed! I probably would not make the effort to go unless I was in the area

We stayed not to far from China town so I went for an early morning walk and it didn't disappoint. Lots of little shops, vendors and people hawking goods on the street. A man was trying to sell me fish from a plastic bag at...More

That is the first thing to do if you are hungry. Do not miss this place, lots of restaurants. Also, do some shopping.

Normally visit China Town for dinner prior to going to Disney Hall. Excellent Sushi, Ramen and Korean style restaurants. There are some Oriental shops and massage parlors in the area but mainly it's about the dining.

I would not stay in this area. It is nice but not worth spending more than a few hours.

We didn't stay close to Chinatown, but I am sure you could find a hotel that would meet your expectations. May I suggest to Google hotels close to the area; Tripadvisor, also, could narrow down the selections for you. The... More
