“Transport to another World”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

In moments, American life is forgotten as you walk through Chinatown. Immersed in another culture and surrounded by countless Asian cuisines, this is a must see adventure. Spend as little or as much time, but see the Friendship Gate which is an internationally known landmark and a symbol of cultural exchange and friendship between Philadelphia and its Sister City, Tianjin, China.

“Charming”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Great architecture, and the people were friendly. We stopped at many of the shops and found some amazing things for very reasonable prices. This is another place that I would not go to after dark- Philadelphia is not a place you want to be at after dark- it's dangerous.

“Dim sum heaven”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Do not miss eating dim sum in Chinatown. Best bet would be on Saturday or Sunday at lunchtime. You will see lots of multi-generational Asian families enjoying the somewhat unusual offerings. Carts navigate between the tables of the large restaurant halls. The scene is great for people-watching. Don't miss the arch marking the entrance to Chinatown.
