You are entering a different world. Street markets, souvenir or shops and specialty shops fill this. It is very large. We had a driver drive us through so we could look at it all. It felt like we had left New York. The streets are...More

Everyone is extremely rude. The people try to sell you fake stuff at such a high price. You go into a store and get followed by the workers. I would never go back.

This name is not a lie. Everywhere you look, the word "China" comes to mind. It also has a large Asian population, which adds authenticity.

This area is easy to get to in southern Manhattan via bus or subway. Plan on spending several hours here and prepare yourself for what seems like a relentless onslaught of vendors selling from every store or outside stand. This Chinatown is very large so...More

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where

Chinatown is located in Lower Manhattan and is adjacent to Little Italy. I would suggest taking Broadway to Canal Street.
