Home to the largest Chinese community outside of Asia, Chinatown was established here in 1848, making it the oldest of its kind in North America. Immerse yourself in the bustle of this densely packed neighborhood with its numerous shops and restaurants. To learn more about the customs, languages, and identity of this famous enclave, embark on one of the many guided tours. Discover the neighborhood's parks, herbal shops, temples, and numerous pagoda-roofed buildings. No visit is complete without sampling some Chinese cuisine. The dim sum teahouses are especially good.
