Don’t miss the chance to explore Chinatown in San Francisco like a local. Whether you’re in the city for a few days or an entire week, Chinatown is one destination you won’t want to miss. Start your tour at Chinatown Gate and make your way down Grant Avenue to see some classic architecture, sample authentic fare, and do some people watching. Relax and take your time soaking it all in so you can get a true taste of local culture!
If it’s another sunny day in San Francisco, make your way over to Portsmouth Square where many locals gather throughout the day to play card games, enjoy a stroll, or play with their kids. You’ll find a handful of neighborhood eateries and cafes within a few blocks of the park, the perfect spot to enjoy some tea and dim sum before the lunch crowds filter in.
You can’t go to Chinatown without venturing through the food markets so plan on bringing a tote bag to stock up on some Asian food essentials. Stockton Street food markets are always abuzz with activity and you won’t find cheaper Chinese ingredients and Chinese American goods anywhere else in the city.
If you’re looking for some photo op hotspots, head over to Waverly Place where you’ll find plenty of historic buildings with unique architectural features. And, if you’re in town during the Chinese New Year Celebration, you’ll be able to take plenty of vivid photos while capturing the parade of floats with marching bands, dancers, and the infamous Golden Dragon.
