A Guide To The Best Of San Francisco

Discover San Francisco's Chinatown

September 12, 2016

San Francisco’s Chinatown is practically next door to the Orchard Garden Hotel, and is an adventure for tourists and locals alike. Where else could you visit a fortune cookie factory, a Buddhist temple, a medicinal herb shop, and enjoy a fabulous 10-course Dim Sum lunch, all in under a few hours?

You can opt for a self-guided tour, but if you want the lowdown only an insider can give, an experienced tour guide is a must. Guided tour costs can vary so shop around. Some tours enforce cancellation policies, and often operate despite the weather, so wear layers for warmth, and don’t forget that raincoat or umbrella. Also, wear comfortable shoes and make sure you are able to walk for 2-3 hours. Check to see if lunch is included in your tour. If so, you’ll need money for lunch and shopping. Finally, most tours request that you tip your guide, so be sure to bring extra cash and get ready to explore!
