After a short train ride South from our hotel, and a short walk West from the station we arrived in Chinatown. Our highlights included stops at KPop USA, wonderful fashion, and fresh noodles.

If you’re expecting something like New York or San Francisco Chinatowns, you’ll be disappointed. This place is much more modest. It does have a good selection of restaurants, lots of bubble tea, traditional Chinese medicine practitioners, and enough interesting shops to fill a morning or...More

Lots of places to eat. A few stores with cheap Chinese tourist stuff. From what I hear, don't go there at night.

Take the Red Line Train from the Loop and it takes you right to Chinatown. Nice to walk around and take in the sights. Ate at Lao Sze Chuan excellent! People are friendly

Chinatown
Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest
neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on
character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In
this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic

Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or
other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your
visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures
