About This Point of Interest
Chinatown International District
The Chinatown International District has been the focal point of the city’s Asian community since the early 20th century. Over many decades, this area has developed into a rich blend of not only Chinese, but Koreans, Filipinos, Vietnamese, and Laotians. With the emergence of the Southeast Asian community, the district continues to renew its Asian American identity. The district is known as one of Seattle’s best restaurant areas, offers unique retail shops and art galleries.
