San Francisco’s Chinatown is one of North America’s largest Chinatowns. It is also the oldest Chinatown. Established in the 1850’s, it has been featured in popular culture, such as in film music, photography and literature. It continues to remain a major tourist attraction — drawing more visitors than the Golden Gate Bridge, and being one of the largest and most prominent centers of Chinese activity outside of China. One thing to note is that bartering for wares is highly encouraged!
Although most people would try Chinese Dim Sum in the heart of Chinatown, I did some research and planned on having Chinese Dim Sum elsewhere. I’m following the local’s on the dim sum hotspot – which we will partake in the following day of our trip!
