San Francisco's Chinatown Tour: A Self-guided Pictorial Walking Tour (Tours4Mobile, Visual Travel Tours Book 69)
HALF-PRICE SALE - WAS 9.99 - LIMITED TIME OFFER
San Francisco's vibrant, ever-packed Chinatown brims with bright facades, ethnic restaurants, serene teahouses, noisy markets, old-world apothecaries, and more!
The 24 square blocks of San Francisco's dynamic Chinatown teem with activity 365 days a year. Beloved Grant Avenue, with its red lanterns and bright facades, brims with woks, kites, and kitschy souvenirs galore. Locals shop at Stockton Street's bargain-priced open-air markets, or relax and gossip at monument-filled Portsmouth Square. Enticing smells waft through the air: dim sum dumplings, mooncakes from traditional bakeries, and fortune cookies from a back-alley "factory." Vying for space on the packed thoroughfares and quiet alleyways are old-fashioned apothecaries, incense-filled temples, historic churches, one-seat barbershops, family benevolent associations, serene teahouses, fresh fruit stalls, and worlds more.
