    Chinatown... where non touristy restaurants and shops no longer exist. Or hardly.

    There is tourist Chinatown, and a street one or two to the West where you feel closest to a Chinese culture. Move over a street at see what happens!

    Just like any other Chinatown. But watch where you're going or you'll trip.

    Be careful about gifts and compare prices in different stores. Sometimes you can buy something less than a half price of another place!

    Steer clear of the pushy restaurant people. Pick a nice busy place on the Main Street with a nice crowd.

    The storefronts with green overhangs will generally sell fruit and vegetables, whereas the ones with red banners generally sell meat, prepared foods and other goods.

    Not really impressive, just another Chinatown neighborhood. Grant St filled with shops and souvenirs is the only "tourist" area.
