Balmy Alley

If you are a lover for political art, read on. Located in Mission District (to say the least, arguably the most culturally diverse district) in San Francisco, Balmy Alley earns its name for the most concentrated collections of murals in this City by the Bay. Unlike the murals you see in Penang, Balmy Alley grows to be a liberal canvas for artists to voice out agendas in Central America namely politics, sex, racism, human rights, to name and yet a few. You can read more here: http://balmyalley.com/

Mr. Holmes Bakehouse

Mr. Holmes Bakehouse is the place for all your sweet tooth desires. The beauty about being a tourist is that you can come on an off day. You avoid the chaos of the Saturday weekend warriors. The fighting over the last "Cruffin" can be completely avoided. The only down side is there isn't really too much lounging space or bathrooms. This is a grab and go kinda place.

Chinatown

The Chinatown centered on Grant Avenue and Stockton Street in San Francisco, California is the oldest Chinatown in North America and the largest Chinese enclave outside Asia. It is the oldest of the four notable Chinatowns in the city. Since its establishment in 1848, it has been highly important and influential in the history and culture of ethnic Chinese immigrants in North America. 

There are two hospitals, numerous parks and squares, a post office, and other infrastructure. While recent immigrants and the elderly choose to live here because of the availability of affordable housing and their familiarity with the culture, the place is also a major tourist attraction, drawing more visitors annually than the Golden Gate Bridge.
