FLYING TO CHINA FROM SAN FRANCISCO

Did we find an error airfare ticket while in San Francisco?

No, we didn’t, but we found San Francisco’s  Chinatown, which was beautiful and offered tasty food.

Muir Woods was our first stop of the day, which is about 12 miles north of San Francisco. The Muir Woods National Monument is an old-growth coastal redwood forest. Please note there is no cell phone service in Muir Woods. Uber/ Lyft will not be able to pick you up. There are shuttle services.

On our way back to San Francisco, we quickly stopped by The Golden Gate Bridge. The Golden Gate Bridge is a famous bridge in San Francisco and runs about three miles long. You could rent a bike, or walk down the bridge if you’d like.

Our last stop was San Francisco’s Chinatown, which is the oldest Chinatown in North America and the largest Chinese community outside Asia. You may have spotted it in movies like Godzilla, The Dead PoolPursuit of Happyness, amongst others. Now, as I mentioned earlier, we did have tasty food. This could be because the restaurants are considered to be the birthplace of Westernized Chinese cuisine such as food items like Chop Suey while introducing and popularizing Dim Sum to Western and American tastes, as its Dim Sum tea houses are a major tourist attraction.
