Chinatown In San Francisco

Thanks to Lydia Barnette for the guest post.

Now that the weather is getting warm again, it is time to once again plan those summer outings. Last summer, I took a trip to San Francisco with a friend and we visited Chinatown. I do not live too far away from there, so it was an easy trip to make. I got up early, set my best home security in my house, and went to pick up my friend for a great day.

After a few stops in San Francisco, we made our way to Chinatown. There is so much to do there that we could not do it all, but there were a few things that stand out as being worth the trip. One of these was the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory. Here, visitors have the opportunity to watch fortune cookies being made right in front of them. A mid-afternoon snack was just what we needed to give us the energy to get to the next awesome place: The Bank of Canton.

The Bank of Canton may not sound like the most exciting place to visit, but it is almost like a museum. It is a very authentic Chinese-looking building which will give you a feel for real Chinese culture. Aside from these places, there are many hotels and restaurants to visit. Take a trip to Chinatown and see for yourself.

  1. Thanks for the information. The Chinese have settled in different countries around the globe. They are either engaged in electronics trade or they set us bars and restaurants to earn their livings. San Francisco is no exception. The Chinese bars in England are posing challenge to the traditional pubs. Bye.
