  • Not a tourist attraction. Site for personal worship and not well kept at that. Little hole in the wall up four flights of stairs. You walk through hallways of apartment doors and graffitied trash cans...  more »
  • We had a very hard time locating this place. Once there it was on the 3rd floor of the building. Once we got to the 3rd floor it said "No pictures" --ok I get that because it is a place of worship. Ho...  more »

  • This is a historic Chinese temple to the Chinese Sea Goddess.
  • Really not a place to go... you go up 3 floors to see some old stuff in a 10 meters Sq area...
  • Went there as part of Chris's Foodie Adventure food tour of China town. He gave is some history and then the lady inside gave us some more history. I won't spoil it for you. Definitely worth going. Make a small donation and experience how to get your fortune told! Pray if you want.
  • Incense peace; Red Buddhas; lots of wishes

Where to stay in San Francisco

From inexpensive hostels in quiet residential areas to high-end hotels near the city center, San Francisco has accommodations for every budget. Key consideration is what kind of neighborhood you want to stay in. You'll find luxury hotels in Union Square, which has prime shopping, is near theaters, and is on the cable car line. Many hotels are in the northeastern portion of the city, near the tourist-driven neighborhoods of Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf, both easily explored on foot. To get away from the tourist crowds, consider the smaller inns and family-run bed and breakfasts in some of the city's more charming neighborhoods, such as Noe Valley or Pacific Heights. There are also boutique hotels scattered around town. Avoid staying in the Tenderloin. If you plan to have a car with you, ask about parking availability and fees. Parking is often difficult and expensive.
