Only 0.8 miles away from Pier 1.5 is the largest Chinatown in the world outside of Asia. Here you have the chance to experience new food, new culture, new traditions, herbal shops, hundreds of shopping stores, and authentic Chinese music.


Captain’s Secret Tip
Look out for the enchanting art (if you’re a bookworm) of books in the sky with the fallen words on the ground! Located at the borderline of Little Italy and Chinatown – Broadway and Grant Ave.

Directions from Taxi
Head southeast on The Embarcadero toward Washington Street, turn right on Washington St., turn left on Spofford St., and finally turn right on Clay St. You will officially be walking around in Chinatown at this point!
