We actually went to Chinatown twice. We didn't have nearly enough time there the first day so we went back again on Saturday and rode the cable car up from the Wharf. The cable car ride was on my "bucket list".
We loved Chinatown........so quaint and so muticultural..........We just loved looking in all the little stores and visiting with the people. We did ask several locals where it was safe to eat and had a nice lunch. Our hotel was not to far and since we love to walk everywhere .. well ....it was perfect.
