First, you and your group will learn the rich history behind graffiti and its impact on local artist communities. You will learn the tricks of the trade and try your hand at this art form with the guidance of a local expert.

Continue with a guided tour of Chinatown, with stops at a fortune cookie factory, and at a local eatery to sample authentic dimsum. Your local expert will highlight both the historic wave of Chinese immigration and its enduring legacy.
