This is no tourist trap; Chinatown in Oakland is about the Chinese of Oakland. It's where they live, work, shop, and dine. It's a real slice of Chinese-Americana, without any touristy hype. I'm not suggesting it as a stop on anyone's itinerary. If one happens to be in Oakland, however, it may be interesting to wander around the shops and markets for an honest view into Chinese living.
