I've been to Chinatown in Chicago, Vancouver and San Francisco. This one is by far the most disappointing. Not worth the hassles of downtown traffic, congestion and parking. On another note, the rest of downtown Boston was beautiful. Loved the historical buildings, the greenway parks,...More

The Chinatown is always a good place to understand more about their culture and culinary. This one in Boston besides being small has its charm.

Chinatown is near Boston Commons. Great authentic food at inexpensive price. If your tired of the expensive seafood places, this is a great alternative.

Boston is so diverse you can walk from one sector to another in minutes. We got to chinatown without planning it. It a different feeling in the streets but people are still friendly. Nice walk.

A small area rich in Chinese cultural influences,
visit Boston’s Chinatown for some great Asian cuisine
and small, authentic bakeries. Enter through the
iconic Chinatown gate and stroll down Beach, Tyler,
