The majority of Chicago’s Chinatown residents are immigrants from Taiwan and mainland China who staunchly maintain their Eastern traditions. Old World Asian architecture begins at the village gate as does English as a second language.
Visitors will stop along bustling Wentworth Avenue to visit quaint shops and authentic markets that sell herbs, tea, and handmade Chinese craftworks. As visitors stroll through Chinatown Square, the delicious aromas coming from over 60 of Chinatown's authentic restaurants will add to the Mandarin and Cantonese ambiance. Just a block or two away is Ping Tom Park with its Chinese gardens and pagoda style shelters that offer visitors a peaceful rest stop. Chicago's Chinatown is no commerical cliché. It is a Chinese immersion experience.
