Historical Tour of New Chinatown
Chinatown was relocated in 1938 to its present location from the area where Union Station is now. The Chinese Historical Society of Southern California offers docent guided historical tour of the New Chinatown.
A tour can be anywhere from 1 hour to 4 hours. It is dependent on the availability of our volunteer docents. A $5 request is asked from each individual being given a tour. There is a minimum of 10 people required in a group tour. Please call our office for appointment, (323) 222-0856.
If you prefer to go on a self guided tour you can pick up a self-guided walking historic trail brochure from our office at 411 Bernard Street, Los Angeles, California. We are located between Hill and Broadway by the entrance to freeway 110 North. The brochure is Angels Walk LA prepared by MTA. It is free.
