California travel expert Veronica Hill of ‪http://www.CaliforniaTravelExpert.com‬ and the California Essential Guide app (‪http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id428163062?mt=8‬) shares her Los Angeles Chinatown Travel Guide in this episode of California Travel Tips.

Located along Broadway and Hill streets, just a short walk from Olvera Street, Chinatown is home to more than 15,000 Asian residents.

For the most touristy experience, head to Central Plaza, where you can enjoy kung fu performances by the Shaolin Monks on the first and third Sunday of each month. Gin Ling Way, named for the street of golden treasures in Peking, is colorful mix of Chinese restaurants, fortune tellers, art galleries and amusements.

Check out the colorful dragon mural painted by Tyrus Wong, then throw a coin for luck at the Seven Star Sacred Caverns wishing pool. The five-tiered Hop Louie Pagoda was built in 1941.

Plenty of good eats are found near Central Plaza. You can enjoy some fortune cookies and Boba tea at Wonder Bakery, nosh on slippery shrimp at Yang Chow, or dig in to some fresh dim sum at Empress Pavilion. Finish up with some strawberry whipped cream cake at Phoenix Bakery.

The old Bruce Lee Martial Arts Studio, located at 628 W. College Street, was his third (and final) kung fu training academy in the United States.

Tip: Join the "Undiscovered Chinatown Walking Tour" for an in-depth look at this historic district. The guided tours are offered the first Saturday of each month at $20 per person. Call (213) 680-0243.
