The day is easily spent in this part of Downtown Los Angeles. A major tourist destination, Chinatown is dotted with restaurants, shops and landmarks, and dozens of entertainment options. Quaint architecture on this strip is complemented by the presence of equally charming Chinese residents. Amble through the markets; stop by the herbal and grocery stores, or simply browse through the cartloads of household goods, toys, CDs, and other knick-knacks on display. Some of the items might raise a few eyebrows, the funeral accessories, for instance. Events, such as art gallery openings, tours and food festivals add to the razzmatazz. When its time to refuel try a meal at a seafood restaurant, or a traditional Chinese eating houses or one f the newer joints that serve American-Chinese. Open hours and credit cards vary by business.
