LA Chinatown 3.0 rating

  Neighbourhoods and Streets

LA's Chinatown is centered around the Los Angeles River and North Broadway, featuring hundreds of ethnic Asian businesses and residential units. Originally settled in the 1860s by immigrants from Guangdong who came here to work on the western section of the first transcontinental railroad, the area has developed into a colorful cultural hotspot with Chinese temples, restaurants, and markets. At about the middle point of N. Broadway is an 'open market' much like those found in Hong Kong. Explore the bustling district to see the traditional East Gate on Broadway and Cesar Chavez Avenue and West Gate on Hill Street, sample some of the delectable dimsums, haggle with vendors in the street markets, admire the murals, and get a glimpse of Chinese culture 6000 miles away from Beijing. If you are visiting during the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival (Sep-Oct) or Chinese New Year (Jan-Feb), you are in for a festive treat of parades and fireworks.
