It is a typical Chinese archery, and is an excellent place for photography and have a nice memory of Washington, DC. Lately that area of the city became very popular for young people and restaurants. It can be crowded

The chinese people stared at us and the whole area smelled bad. The arch iteself was cool to see and the kids enjoyed seeing everything written in chinese, but it just did not seem like a friendly area.

Even though the Chinatown in DC is dwindling very fast, and the previous town is now just a few restaurant left, and you could barely see any Chinese living here. However, the Archway is quite beautiful, and derserve a visit on its own right.

It's like a gateway into this section of the city. It's a nice decorative arch. Nothing to go out of your way to see, but if you're in the downtown area, for a show at one of the numerous theaters, or out for a concert...More
