Any self-respecting American city should have its own Chinatown and Philadelphia is no exception. Philadelphia's Chinatown is one of the most authentic in the USA. As you drive under the famous arch, you'll immediately be welcomed to the neighborhood with dozens of shops and restaurants that make you feel like you've been transported to another world entirely. Chinatown in Philadelphia has its own rules and this is not just a figure of speech. You'll notice upon entering the difference in their waste removal service as here it is controlled by the shops in the neighborhood. They Mayor of the city is kept out of this and other services.
