The International District is one of the many places in Seattle that is very interesting and very diversed. Just bear in mind that Seattle is one of the cities in the United States where 59 languages are spoken!

The International District is a place where you can taste different cuisines : Japanese, Chinese, Filipino, Malaysian, Cambodian, Singaporean, and Vietnamese. There are so many grocery stores here where you can buy imported goods from Japan, China and Vietnam.

This is a place where you can go for Dim Sum on early Sunday morning, and eat Wonton Soup late at night!

Every summer, the Chinese Festival is held here and also the Bon Odori (Japanese) Festival.
