4 Dates Through Oct 11, 2015

Explore Philadelphia’s iconic Chinatown, sample its tastiest treats, and learn about this growing community’s future as it expands northwards over the I-676 Vine Street Expressway. The people of Philadelphia’s Chinatown have long fought to preserve their community and culture. Their legacy is one of the most vibrant Chinatowns in America – with some notable battle scars earned along the way.

This tour will highlight Chinatown’s unique architecture and upcoming developments such as the Rail Park and Eastern Tower Community Center. Tour lasts 2+ hours and ends at DesignPhiladelphia’s Pearl Street Passage.
