Chinatown, DC

A small Chinatown is located on the Metro in NW, DC. It is getting smaller every year, but there are some good shops left and a couple of places to eat. This area is the location of the Chinese New Year Parade, so if you go to that, you can shop before or after it.

Chinatown is located east of downtown Washington, DC between H and I Streets and 5th and 8th Streets, NW.

Here are some shops I like:

  • Wah Shing International
    815 7th Street, NW
    Washington, DC 20001
    They have martial Arts stuff, and Chinese Children’s clothing along with other stuff.
  • New Da Hsin Trading Inc.
    811 7th St., NW
    Washington, DC 20001
    I particularly like this place, they have cooking, serving stuff, masks, some toys and generally the best place in Chinatown for finding Chinese stuff I like.
