Chinatown (San Francisco, USA) Reviews
Newest Review: ... in the 1970s and gained a fairly unsavoury reputation, it is now a very peasant area with a relaxed atmosphere. One of the main attractions in this area is the cable car museum. As the city is famous for the cable car you should take a ride on one. The routes generally run from Fisherman's Wharf to Union Square and they provide a great way to climb the steep streets without much (or any) effort. If you are interested in learning more about them, the museum is located on Mason Street and is free to enter. You can learn about the mechanisms of the cars as well as the emergency procedures for stopping them. In stark contrast to Nob Hill, Chin... more

Another area of San Francisco that you should visit is Nob Hill and the nearby Chinatown. They sit at the top of the hill overlooking Union Square and the Tenderloin district and they are both great places to walking around and soak up the atmosphere. They both also have a couple of points of interest that may appeal to some. Nob Hill is so named after the wealthy nabobs who built their huge mansions on the steep streets of the area. You can still see signs of the area's heyday and the buildings are wonderful to look at. There is also an area at the base of the hills on the western side known as Polk Gulch which was once a gay mecca. Although it went through a ... Read the complete review

We went to this Chinatown (the largest outside of Asia) for my birthday lunch as i had decided on sushi. Upon coming out we kind of stumbled unwittingly into the main market area. The stalls and markets are interesting and full of life, but the stuff they sell is tacky and cheap. They probably make a good living from selling crappy souvenirs to stupid foreigners.

There were people in big masks, long, winding dragons, dancers and children banging drums down the middle of the street. It was all very fun as i definitely wasn't expecting it. I mean, i've seen it on TV but i ... Read the complete review

When we stayed in San Francisco on our Honeymoon we were right next door to Chinatown. Our friends had recently come back and they told us Chinatown was worth a look around so we should take a trip there so with it being right on our doorstep we spent quite a lot of time there. Here is why I think you should definitely go if you find yourself in the area. Chinatown is right smack bang in the middle of San Francisco and is clearly marked on most maps so you should be able to find it very easily. Apparently it is one of the largest Chinatowns outside of Asia and is also one of the oldest in America so it has quite a bit of history which is nice. ... Read the complete review

Now I happen to think that San Francisco is one of the most magical cities in the world, so when you get into Chinatown in the City centre you are in fact entering a magical world inside another magical world! What could be more enchanting? I've been to San Francisco quite a few times and I always go for a meal in Chinatown. I've never been to China (yet) so this is the next best thing for me with the added bonus of it being a democratic sort of place, unlike the real one. (Don't get me started on China and Tibet!) So, what's it like? First thing to know is that it is it is the largest Chinese community outside of China and it's Blooming crowded! That's ... Read the complete review
