Around Chinatown

Whether you're looking for condominium or single-family housing, Chinatown has a great selection for any new or current Houstonian. Many of the condominium buildings are historical in style but boast modern amenities like pools and gyms. There are also some new luxury builds nearer the Westpark Tollway for those looking for an upgrade. Single-family homes are mostly in residential neighborhoods that have a strong family presence. In fact, 35% of the neighborhood is under the age of eighteen. The homes are more affordable than other parts of the city, but you will need a car to commute to other areas.

True to its name, Chinatown has Houston's best Asian cuisine. Chinatown has been delighting palates for over thirty years. Whether you favor hole-in-the wall digs or prestigious restaurants, Chinatown caters to a wide-range of patrons. Despite the neighborhood name, you will also find other cuisines from Asia, ranging from Thai to Japanese.

Walking around Chinatown, you're sure to notice the rich cultural presence of the area. Similar to other Chinatowns around the country, street and business signs are more than likely to be in both English and Chinese. There isn't a big walkability score for the area, as a major road runs through it, but you will find plenty of people out and about on their daily business. The area has almost everything you would need with abundant grocery stores, cuisine, and recreation.

Friday night is karaoke time. If you're looking to show off your singing prowess, look no further than Chinatown. Many of Houston's best nightclubs are located in the neighborhood, so you can dance your way into the early hours of the morning. Downtown and the Galleria are conveniently located only a short drive away. You can also jump on the Metro bus that runs through the neighborhood and have Houston at your fingertips.

Sunday in Chinatown is a great place to rest and relax. Some of the best foot and back massage parlors are located in the area. For a good price, you can be on your way to winding down the weekend and relaxing before the week ahead. You could also pop over to Harwin Drive for a bit of shopping.
