Thanks! I think Chinatown has seen a face lift since I was there! The first shot, with the dragon looking in from the background, is neat.
Thanks for the visit!

Wow..a series of interesting photos, Jo! I've been there just one long ago..didn't see anything like in your photos.
Diane, Thanks I always love the mix of colors.

AnneYP, thank you and have fun Saturday sightseeing

Evelyn, glad you like it and thank you. You have a wonderful Sunday as well

Eg, it is very inviting I like going there as much as possible.

Dimple, thanks, it could very well be.

Shark, I agree, I really love it.

Doan, thanks. There is a rate of turnover as far as retail businesses etc... so it is ever changing.

Wow this reminds me of the hotel we stayed when we went to SF a few years back. It's located just beside the Chinatown bridge! Brings back happy memories!!!

Hi, I'm visiting through "Saturday Sightings." I love the colors in your photos! I've never been to San Fran; your photos bring Chinatown to life!

Blessings to you,

Michelle, There are many places in Chinatown to stay and they are all colorful and fun. Hope you get back here someday. xoxo

Mrs. M, I really enjoy this meme. Where did you live for 5 years?

Ann, I adore seeing red lanterns. They bring back such good memories of my two visits to Hong Kong.

Christine, thank you so much for stopping by and commenting.

I'm still waiting to win the lottery so I can go back and buy that chest we saw on our little excursion. Did you see any more giant pigs?
