This Chinatown is nothing special to see...however, the restaurants are some of the best! Dim Sum can be found at multiple places and most are really good. Not a lot of shopping, but very close to downtown shopping.

Very clean though, but I have seen better ones like the one in San Francisco where you can feel the chinese vibe. Many stores, tea houses, restaurants, but that is about it!

Not much to see. Nothing like San Francisco Chinatown. We had a good lunch but that was it. Not much else to do. Would not go back or recommend.

Not too many stores gearing for souvenirs in the heart of it. Mainly restaurants and groceries types of shops. There's Uwajimaya though that has a huge selection of things that she may like.

It's quite near and Safeco can be seen from Chinatown. You can either take the bus or the train if you don't like to walk.
