Complete with overcrowded streets and shouting matches over bok choy, San Francisco’s Chinatown neighborhood is well worth a visit.┬áMain Street for tourists is Grant Avenue, which unfortunately is more about cheap tea sets and kitschy Hello Kitty merchandise than the long heritage of Chinatown itself.┬áVendors selling live turtles, ducks and other animals might seem strange to untrained Western eyes, but the markets are definitely fun to explore.
