About Chinatown

There is so much more to Los Angeles than celebrity sightings and visits to Rodeo Drive. When exploring L.A., Chinatown is an absolute must-see, filled with cute shops and fantastic restaurants. Located just north of City Hall and adjacent to Union Station, Chinatown is about a square mile. It is accessed through one of the ornate gates, either the main dragon or the east or west gates. Once you enter the gates into Chinatown, you will feel like you just entered a whole new world. Chinese culture abounds here, and you will soon be caught up in the festivities that spill out onto the streets of Chinatown. Be sure to visit during one of the many festivals, such as the Chinese New Year, the Moon Festival, or CicLAvia. During the summer months, Chinatown hosts Summer Nights, an explosion of color and fantasy used to highlight the old country culture and fuse it with more modern customs. 

In 1938, Chinatown was torn down and relocated to its current location to make room for Union Station. It is many times referred to as New Chinatown. Chinatown can quickly become packed with tourists and locals enjoying the festive atmosphere. You do not want to have to drag large bags or luggage through Chinatown. Bounce has several locations nearby where you can leave your bags for safekeeping.

Fun Fact: There is only one building that remains standing from the original Chinatown. This building is the Garnier Building and is part of the El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historic Site and houses the Chinese American Museum. 

Things to Do in Chinatown

You will be on sensory overload when you visit Chinatown in Los Angeles for the first time. There is so much to see and experience, you could spend the entire day and not see everything in this iconic district. Even if you are not a fan of Chinese food, step through the gates of Chinatown and marvel at the culture that has survived being relocated and is celebrated through festivals ceremonies throughout the year. 

You can easily become overwhelmed and not know where to start once you get to Chinatown. Here are a few suggestions to get you started on your adventure.

  • Snap a photo of the Chinatown Gateway Monument, also known as the Dragon Gate. The gate lights up at night with bright colors, which makes it the perfect spot to snap selfies. 
  • Check out the East Gate, also known as the Gate of Maternal Virtues. Enter the gate from Broadway and visit the central plaza of Chinatown. The East Gate was created by You Chung Hong to honor the memory of his mother.
  • Visit the West Gate at night and enjoy its fantastic color-coordinated lights. Stop by the Wishing Well right inside the West Gate, created to mimic southern China’s Seven Star Caverns.
  • Eat at the Plum Tree Restaurant and enjoy the spicy flavors of true Szechuan cuisine. While there, spend time marveling over the tile mural that is one of the largest hand-painted tiled mosaics outside of China.  
  • Stroll through Central Plaza, the first part of New Chinatown to be completed, and enjoy a treat from one of the street vendors and watch the lights come on in the plaza and gates at dark. 
  • Wander through West Plaza and down a small alleyway called Chung King Road. West Plaza is where many Chinatown residents live and was constructed in 1943.
  • Head over to the Castelar Elementary School and view the mural named “The Party of Lan-Ting” created by Shi Yan Zhang. While there, check out the school, which is one of the oldest schools in Los Angeles.
