Yes, it's always crowded but as a backpacker and a budget traveler, this is where you will go to eat nearly every day. It's on the way to the down town, the piers and the main attractions so walking around the city you will definitely...More
It is full of sparkle and just good stuff. The big ticket exotic stores are like Museums. The gift shops are just full of amazing thing s. Tibetan sound bowls, bamboo, beads , statues, kimonos, Asian clothes, decor, tea pot sets. I found it hard...More
Nice area, easily walkable from where we stayed at the Omni. Usual Chinatown type shopping, nothing extraordinary. Very nice murals and photo ops on almost every building. Leads into little Italy if you're able to walk.
Fascinating morning in China Town during the build up to the year of the Pig. Lots going on, great atmosphere and interesting shops. The food shops were amazing and I saw things I've never seen before, including an armadillo ready to be cooked!!
During a 2 day stopover in San Francisco, my husband and I started a day's walking around the city (we did 7 & 1/2 miles!) by going up Grant Avenue, through Chinatown, as it is just above Union Square where we were staying.
Walk Grant Avenue to experience this place where people from China, many of whom came to the US with almost nothing, have built a whole rich place to continue their culture. Eat in Chinatown...the eating is good, and you can eat in a wide, wide...More
As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique neighborhood decorated with colorful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands,
tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighborhood.

Parking is difficult EVERYWHERE and expensive most places. If you are going to be there a few days get the 3 day MUNI passports. They are great for getting to most places in San Francisco. For sure way cheaper than parking... More
Parking is difficult EVERYWHERE and expensive most places. If you are going to be there a few days get the 3 day MUNI passports. They are great for getting to most places in San Francisco. For sure way cheaper than parking several places a day. If you have not committed to a hotel the Cow Hollow Inn and Suites are great and have free underground parking. That was what we opted for after tabulating costs elsewhere and parking. Lots of breakfast nooks and we got the 2 bedroom suite which was very spacious had 1 queen and 2 double and a couch. Not sure of kids ages. They also have a full kitchen with microwave. Good luck. We only had 3 days wish we had more. Lots of decent free things to do also.
