Chinatown, San Francisco

San Fran’s Chinatown is all consuming-and by that we mean you’ll be doing a lot of drinking, dining and shopping. 

Nowhere else in the city can you get a bowl of sizzling rice soup, medicinal herbs and a strong Chinese mai tai within one city block. There’s also no shortage of landmarks to check out, like the Dragon’s Gate and the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory. Hungry for some history and culture? Check out the Chinese Historical Society of America, which has a cool collection of Chinatown houses in miniature.
