About the Trip

Your day begins with a fun, fact filled presentation introducing Boston’s very own Chinatown.  A few minutes later – you’ll be walking out the front door of the hostel and right into the heart of Chinatown!

Have you ever wondered why or how Boston’s Chinatown started, who moved there and why?  You’ll find this out and much more during your Historic Chinatown Walking Tour. Your group will be guided by Chinatown locals excited to show off their Neighborhood and discuss its history and continued importance to the city of Boston.

And after the walking – there will be eating! Your group will be guided through the unique experience of a traditional Chinese Dim Sum meal at a local restaurant.

This most exotically delicious history lesson you will not forget!
