This electric neighborhood of 100,000 people is not to be missed, and it's not hard to find: listen for the clack of mahjongg tiles and nose out the salty spicy squid.

The only part worth seeing are the entrance gates. We visited in the morning and looked through some stores. We took a few pictures and left. We didn't eat there, but the restaurants appear authentic.

An abundance of colour, smells and photo opportunities. Chinatown is such a vibrant place to be. There are vegan restaurants here, so everyone can find suitable eats.

This is one of my favorite areas to walk through in San Francisco. Very interesting architecture and shops, with restaurants serving amazing food. We've been here twice and in the Washington, D.C. Chinatown; I love San Francisco more!
