Chinatown-International District

Chinese immigrants originally landed in Seattle in the 1860s, finding work at the town's saw mills, rail lines and on its fishing boats. Today, the Chinatown-International District spans some 44-blocks south of downtown Seattle, bound by Yesler Way and Dearborn Street on the north and south, and Interstate-5 and Fourth Avenue on the east and west.

Seattle's Asian population has grown steadily to 13.1 percent (according to the U.S. Census Bureau, 2000 Census), and today sizable populations of Chinese, Japanese, Filipino, Korean, Vietnamese, Samoan, Laotian, Native Hawaiian and other groups all coexist in the Chinatown-International District.

The Chinatown Discovery Tour offers a guided walk through the district.
Don't miss Uwajimaya, one of the largest Asian grocery and gift stores in the U.S. at Sixth & Weller.
