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.

Lots of little shops with souvenir type items, Asian clothing. Honestly, I would have rather spent our limited time doing something else. But first trip to the city so we hit all the tourist spots. We didn't eat here.

Suggest you do this during the weekdays as the weekends are packed with tourists. Top Chinatown with the lower 48 - shops, restaurants and street vendors. Don't waste your time with Americanized Chinese food, head to Jackson Street and try the real thing - most...More

Worth a walk through but no more than an hour or two unless you're having a meal here. We found a few interesting souvenirs but all shops seemed to have the same items. Even the Dragon's Gate entrance at the intersection of Grant and Bush...More

We walked down from the cable car museum to China Town (2 blocks). Just what we expected. Lots of stores selling the same stuff. Didn't expect all the dried seafood though. Weird smell and expensive.

Lots of shops for souvenirs. Lots of places to choose where to eat at. Streets are very small with lots of hills

I didn't like Chinatown. It lacked atmosphere and the shopping wasn't anything special. Bit of a snooze really.

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,

Here's the thing about San Francisco. If someone in your group has difficulty walking you need to research the bus system which is quite comprehensive. It can take you where you want to go. Embarcadero is a nice area to... More

I usually ask to be dropped off at the 'dragon gate' at the bottom of the hill, then walk up past the shops and restaurants. I'm unsure of the name of the street, but all taxi and Uber drivers know where it is. I would give... More
