Postcards from China Town – San Francisco

My Huz and I went to San Francisco for a concert recently.  Like usual we always take any opportunity to visit the city as a chance to explore some portion of it we haven’t explored before.  So this time we parked the car at the concert venue and Uber-ed over to China Town.  (Doesn’t that sound hip!?) I have driven through China Town plenty of times.  But, we had never taken the opportunity to walk around and explore the shops and people watch before.

A few highlights for me were the street art, the grocers with stores full of unidentifiable food stuffs, the junk shops full of crazy stuff you can’t live without, and the locals gambling publicly in the parks.

The south entrance to China Town


Locals gambling very seriously out in the open air park


Lots of interesting street art around


  

Old signage still proudly stands


I honestly didn’t know what most of the stuff for sale was but it was still interesting to look at


$268 per pound? Woah.


Chop sticks anyone?

  1. Haven’t been there but it was great to read your post. I laughed at the cost of the plastic chopsticks – in SF they are $6.99 – in Beijing (I bought some for friend’s children) they are less than a $1 each…people have to make money somehow!!

  2. A great post Jenny. Made me remember the first time I went to Frisco, ages ago, and we couldn’t find Chinatown! I think it was smaller then.
    Great street art too.
    Merci.
