San Francisco's Chinatown is the oldest Chinatown in North America
and the largest Chinese community outside Asia. Since its establishment
in the 1840s, it has been highly important and influential in the history
and culture of ethnic Chinese immigrants to the United States and North
America. Popularly known as a "city-within-a-city", it has developed its
own government, traditions, over 300 restaurants, and as many
shops. Visitors can easily become immersed in a microcosmic Asian
world, filled with herbal shops,temples, pagoda roofs and dragon parades.
The reality of Chinatown is that there are two Chinatowns:
One belongs to the locals, the other charms the tourists.
They overlap and dance with each other, drawing more visitors
annually than the Golden Gate Bridge.
At Explore San Francisco, we show you the city as a local, so we will
indeed take you to the touristy area but we will also escort you
into the alleys and side streets where the residents lead their lives,
usually unseen by most tourists.
Visitors to Chinatown expect something they won't find anywhere else.
They expect to be stunned and enchanted and tempted with great food.
And they will.
Customers of Explore SF expect to see the city as locals.
And they will.
Visitors on a Food Tour of China town expect to see and have the familiar
and to try and be delighted by the exotic
and new. And they will .
We will show you Chinatown as we would show our family and
friends. We will show you the Chinatown that tourists rarely see, the alleys and side
streets of Chinatown, this is where the locals do their daily business, leading their daily
lives, which is afterall, the real Chinatown.
