When you arrive in Chinatown/International District, you should come by transit. When you arrive in the transit tunnel, you are greeted with some colorful origami art that graces the walls of the tunnel. When you walk up the steps to street level you will see the great decorative entry way. This, is probably the most photographed part of Chinatown next to areas around the park. There are several great places to eat in the area and an excellent Asian supermarket down the street. The area is a little dirty and sometimes dodgy around the transit station, but still safe.
