We went to Chinatown around lunchtime. Traveled by subway, which is the fastest way to get there (and least expensive). We loved seeing the phone booths that look like miniature pagodas. Many of the fish markets have the fresh fish still wiggling on display. Fresh...More

I suppose it’s good to take in, but it see,ed more chaotic and haphazard than anything else. Just loads of the same everywhere. Seems popular with locals at least, but though we were going to eat, we just didn’t feel confident with some of the...More

Same stuff on every street. If you’re not into haggling don’t go there to shop. Food markets looked good but didn’t eat there, we went to Little Italy to eat.

Having lived in Singapore for over four years, I was curious to see Chinatown NYC style. Hmmm ... it's in a word RIPE. It didn't help that it was a sunny day, and the scent was high. It's colourful, shabby and very ticky tacky tourist...More

It's always fun to walk from Houston street down to China town. Love some of the old classic restaurants to some of the new ones. I miss the grittiness of the 80" but still, there is a lot going on there.

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families

Chinatown is located in Lower Manhattan and is adjacent to Little Italy. I would suggest taking Broadway to Canal Street.
