Your guide to Portland's Chinatown.
A 38-foot arch flanked by two bronze-cast lions greets you as you enter Old Town Chinatown, in downtown Portland. Venture beyond the pagoda-style gates to discover the city’s most buzzed-about borough, a rapidly-developing area that was once home to one of the country’s largest Chinese-American communities. The neighborhood has always been one of our favorite city stops, what with its impressive architecture and flavorful eats. But now, the red-lantern-lined district is gaining mainstream appeal, thanks to the arrival of trendy new hotels, restaurants by James Beard award-winning chefs, and quirky shops helmed by some of the city’s finest makers, from custom kimono designers to leather smiths. Read on for a full list of attractions.
