San Francisco's Chinatown is the largest one outside of Asia, and the oldest in North America. The 26 block district is one of the most visited in San Francisco, attracting more people every year than even the Golden Gate Bridge, and for good reason. What a photographic paradise it is!

Chinatown's "Dragon Gate" entrance on Bush Street and Grant Avenue is right down the street from Union Square. Enter there and walk into another world of exotic food, colorful temples and buildings and great people watching.

This will take you all the way to Columbus Avenue and the beginning of North Beach, the "Little Italy" section of the city. 

When in Chinatown, be sure to check out the colorful alleys. Ross Alley is the home for the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Co. where over 2,000 cookies are churned out every day.
