Though much smaller than the Chinese neighborhoods of New York and San Francisco, great food and numerous small Chinese specialty stores still abound in Chinatown.

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.

This has been one of the places that I have been coming to my entire life. In fact, they still have the wishing-well that I used to throw pennies into when I was a kid. Has Chinatown changed over the years? Not much. Yes, some...More

It was a fun walking experience to us. Compared to 20 something years ago, Chinatown has changed a lot. I am surprised to see the change. We parked our car at this new developed residential/commercial plaza. The whole plaza was all decorated with beautiful red...More

I was really looking forward to visiting the area after being in San Fran's Chinatown, that blows this one away. We found the people to be rude & the whole place was quite disappointing. Don't waste valuable vacation time, 5/10

Not much to see. Nothing like NY or San Francisco. A few shops and restaurants but not a real area or neighborhood

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
