Chinatown is Chicago is extremely lively and busy. It is also huge and is located near South Side.

Apart from a lot of restautants with the greatest Chinese cuisine, there are Chinese medicine stores, grocery stores and shops with authentic Chinese items. There are also, of course a lot of cheaper souvenir shops as well, but don't bother those, go for the real staff.

In the center, on Chinatown Square there is a big statue with the animals of the Chinese Zodiac while the Chinatown mural depicts the history of the Chinese immigrants. There are a lot more sightes and if you are attracted to Chinese culture, you should see it all.

Address:
Cemak and Wentworth Avenues

How to get there:
With CTA red line, get down at Cemak -Chinatown station.
