Stay away if this is your first "ChinaTown" experience. From San Francisco to Chicago to NYC…Seattle's "international" district is DEPRESSING. TIP - Do not walk to this district as it is surrounded by "seedy" neighborhoods (lots of homeless people acting very very strange). I keep...More

Ride the light rail here with the kids. They had never seen international district. I thought it would be a great way to expose them to different cultures. I read other reviews about the "roughness" of the area. Did see a lot of homeless and...More

When you arrive in Chinatown/International District, you should come by transit. When you arrive in the transit tunnel, you are greeted with some colorful origami art that graces the walls of the tunnel. When you walk up the steps to street level you will see...More

Not too many stores gearing for souvenirs in the heart of it. Mainly restaurants and groceries types of shops. There's Uwajimaya though that has a huge selection of things that she may like.

It's quite near and Safeco can be seen from Chinatown. You can either take the bus or the train if you don't like to walk.
