Bridge
The walking trail is open from 5:00-18:30 (5:00-21:00 in summer time) and vehicles can pass the bridge all day. (Local time)
As a globally renowned single-span suspension bridge, Golden Gate Bridge is the symbol and landmark of San Francisco. The Bridge spans the entire San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate strait of the Pacific Ocean, making it an important transportation hub linking San Francisco and cities to the north. Many US movies and TV shows have been filmed here. The north of the Bridge is an ideal site to take a panoramic picture of the structure; and its bright orange arch seems shrouded in mystery in foggy days; the Bridge's southern side is more suitable for a close-up snapshot of the water and the body of the Bridge. If the schedule allows, you can rent a bicycle and experience a more unique view while riding the length of the Bridge.

Chinatown San Francisco

Featured Neighbourhood
Open all day (Local time)
San Francisco Chinatown can be said to be a large Chinese community outside of Asia. In addition to the Chinese street in New York in the United States, other Chinese gathering places always feel a little less flavor. Although San Francisco Chinatown is next to the spectacular Union Square and the Western Financial Center, it does not affect the Chinese atmosphere of San Francisco Chinatown. The flying plaque wall everywhere, Qionglou Yuyu, Chinese plaque, makes people completely unfamiliar in their hometown.

Located in the center of Golden Gate Park, the recently opened California Academy of Arts and Sciences is one of the city's gems. Designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano, the Academy's roof is made of grass and sculpted to look like the park's rolling hills had been lifted up and the Academy slipped underneath. Beneath the roof, the Academy houses a full-scale aquarium, a natural history museum and a planetarium. Great for kids, there is enough to see here for a full day.
