Like what I've said Previously, There is actually is two Chinatowns in San Francisco, the Old but touristy Chinatown at Grant Street in the Downtown Area and the New Chinatown here at Inner Richmond at Clement Street: Clement Street is the one belongs to the locals, the other in Grant Street charms the tourists. They overlap and dance with each other but the Chinatown in Downtown drawing more visitors annually than the Golden Gate Bridge. It is only Surpassed by the Fisherman's Wharf.

The New Chinatown is not known among the tourists but is a favorite among locals since parking here is not expensive like in downtown and is far from the crowds. Inner Richmond is actually a multi cultural district and you would see Irish Bars and Italian Stands alongside the Chinese and Vietnamese and other asian shops and restaurants. Stroll along Clement and you?ll see that the array of produce shops, restaurants, cafes, and businesses lining Clement Street from Arguello to 25th present a distinct Asian presence. Clement is where visitors can shop for the same roasted ducks, ginseng, tropical durian, mangoes and star fruit as Chinatown, Clement street are often filled with the hustle and bustle of local visitors who come to sample dim sum, Thai, Persian, French, Irish or Burmese cuisine.
