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.

Lesson learned
Suzanne_H, Sep 2021
New York in One Day Guided Sightseeing Tour
Jerry was quite knowledgeable of most of the sites. He was excited about history and sharing that with us. I wish he would have been a little more diligent about his face mask instead of wearing it on his chin all day. It would have been a good example to some of the tour group who were hesitant. I booked the tour because I thought there would be safety protocols in place.

Rachel, our tour guide, did an excellent job. She gave us a lot of great information about some of the most iconic NYC landmarks and monuments. Also, her attention to safety was on point throughout the whole tour. I definitely recommend this tour to anyone who's interested on having a quick but very fun and detailed tour around NYC.

New York in One Day Guided Sightseeing Tour
There was a mix up with our tickets, and the tour operator, Pedro, was very polite and accommodating. The tour left on time, the van was very nice and clean. Rachel gave us lots of interesting history of city and architecture around the city. Would have liked a little more time on our own on ferry or some of the spots, like Central Park. Overall excellent experience to get the most of Manhattan in a day!

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.

When to Get There

As is the rest of the City That Never Sleeps, Chinatown is always abuzz with some kind of activity, day or night. If you’re in search of a dim sum meal, you’ll find the freshest and best selection in the morning (as dim sum is typically eaten for breakfast).

Shopping in Chinatown

Next to eating, the best Big Apple Chinatown experience is shopping. Stroll your way down Canal Street between Broadway and Mulberry Street for the best stretch of sidewalk shopping, including knock-offs of all shapes, styles, and sizes. Other popular stops include Chinese candy stores, the enormous Asian groceries, and herbal medicine shops.
