With a population of more than 100,000 San Francisco’s Chinatown is one of the largest Chinese neighbourhoods in the United States. With its typical Chinese entrance gate characterizes the beautifully decorated Asian buildings in the neighbourhood. Strolling down the busy streets like Grant Avenue and Stockton Street you can visit one the many restaurants or exotic shops or step in one of the temples (especially Tin How Temple).
Chinatown is always crowded with tourists, but if you go into the side streets it quickly becomes more quiet and authentic. The best way to see everything is the Chinatown tour, which takes you to a fortune cookie factory. Inside you get to see how they are produced and shipped all over the globe. And of course there are many fantastic Chinese dining options in the countless restaurants.
