New York City Chinatown

Canal Street, 10013

The Basics

Chinatown offers something for nearly everyone. Bargain for not-quite-right perfumes and handbags, dine on dim sum at an authentic Chinese tea house, shop for exotic Chinese antiques, find unusual ingredients in the Asian food markets to cook pork buns at home, and discover more than 150 years of history and culture at the Museum of Chinese in America and the city’s largest Buddhist temple. Columbus Park is a great place for a picnic after grabbing food from a street vendor.

Guided food tours are an excellent way to explore Chinatown. A Chinatown food tour includes an in-the-know tour guide who will show visitors around the neighborhood's best food options, from popular restaurants to hidden stalls. Private or small-group tours often combine routes in Chinatown and the adjacent neighborhoods of SoHo and Little Italy.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Chinatown is a great place to practice your Cantonese or Mandarin; there is also an increasing number of Fuzhounese-speaking residents.

  • For a dim sum meal, unless you have a party large enough to fill a traditional oversized table, expect to share a communal table with other diners.
