Chinatown Walking Tour (Self Guided), Las Vegas

La Vegas is a city of surprises and extravagances ranging from the totally outrageous to the completely ridiculous! Luckily, Chinatown doesn’t fall into either of these categories and is a true gem hidden near the heart of the city. It is probably one of the only places in Vegas where you will find authentic people, food and stores. Unlike the Chinatowns in most other cities, but completely in keeping with Las Vegas, the district didn’t grow up and spread out naturally, but rather was planned by city developers. This, however, doesn’t distract from its unique charm as the residents have added their own personal touches, making it a true neighborhood faithful to the ethnic origins of its pan-Asian inhabitants.

You will find a multitude of both large and small shops selling traditional herbal remedies, fragrant teas and Asian spices, nestling alongside up-market shopping malls and department stores. On Chinatown Plaza you will find a gilded statue portraying “The Journey to the West and the Monkey King” and a beautiful Chinese arch. If you have come to Chinatown to eat, you won’t be disappointed and you will find a vast choice of restaurants, cafes and snack bars offering Chinese, Japanese, Filipino and Vietnamese menus.
