Chinatown is best experienced on foot, but if you’re traveling with a group and coming from another part of the city, you should charter a rental bus and arrive in style. We have many types of charter buses to choose from: mini coach buses that fit an average of 32 passengers, school buses for large class trips, coach buses for tour groups, and minibuses that fit an average of 21 passengers for a smaller outing. Whatever your groups needs, we have the right style of bus to meet them and provide safe transportation to and from Chinatown!
While there are actually four notable Chinatowns in San Francisco, the oldest and largest is the main Chinatown to visit. Since its establishment in 1848, it has played an important and influential role in the history and culture of Chinese immigrants in North America. Chinatown spans a total of 24 city blocks and it is the most densely populated neighborhood west of Manhattan. San Francisco’s Chinatown offers visitors the opportunity to experience Chinese culture. One of the most photographed locations in Chinatown is the Dragon’s Gate, which is the southern entrance to Chinatown on Grant Avenue, which runs the length of Chinatown. Once in Chinatown, visitors can explore a maze of herbal and tea shops, souvenir stores, bakeries, karaoke bars, and dark cocktail lounges. Other notable attractions include St. Mary’s Square, the Sing Chong and Sing Fat buildings, and Portsmouth Square, which is the oldest public space in San Francisco.
