An important crosstown street that starts near Union Square, runs under a side of Nob Hill, and then through Chinatown and North Beach. Important and picturesque neighborhoods.

Although I do not remember the name of the place we ate, I can say that most of the spots in this area of Chinatown are typically quite good. Gourmet? No. Authentic? Absolutely! Enjoy San Francisco's Chinatown. It's definitely an experience you will not soon...More

Not especially pretty with all the construction for the new subway, so the area around Union Sq. has seen better days. The tunnel goes under Nob Hill and is functional, but don't walk through it as it is dirty and polluted. And then you emerge...More

A very orientalist version of the Chinese experience. You can find pressed duck, mah Jong, woks, live chickens, and produce.

It leads you to Union Square, your hotel, shops and tons of restaurants. This is a nice street but while we were there they had portions of the road torn up. If you go to Union Square you'll end up on Stockton at some point.

I stayed on Stockton Street for business and over the 4th of July weekend this year. It's a relatively quiet street, but the entire length features a wide range of shops, restaurants and attractions. If you get time to walk it, it's fascinating.

San Fran...the city that never sleeps....not. We couldn't find a parking space until just before 6:00 pm and at 6:00 pm the vast majority of the shops closed. A few restaurants still open but it was a disappointment.

There are several shops on the street with everything you can think of. Pressed duck and prepared food, clothes, vegetables, silk komonos, lottery tickets, all sorts of fun things. It's crowded with elderly Chinese people doing their daily shopping, and the language is a sharp...More

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,
