Located just steps from the Pennsylvania Convention Center, Philadelphia’s Chinatown – the second largest on the East Coast – is a concentration of restaurants, markets and shops featuring goods from Asian countries including China, Taiwan, Vietnam, Korea, Myanmar, Japan and Malaysia. About 3,000 people, the majority with ancestors from Asian countries, live in this bustling yet tight-knit community.
Stroll the bustling streets to immerse yourself in the history and culture of the neighborhood, pick up souvenirs at local shops, and visit nearby Franklin Square for family-friendly fun and fountain shows.
No visit to Philadelphia’s Chinatown is complete without enjoying Peking duck, hand shaved noodles, dim sum and other Asian delicacies offered by some of the city’s most popular restaurants.Eat and Drink
