Self Tour in Los Angeles (Day 2)

After having our light breakfast, we start off our second day by heading to Chinatown in the morning. The Chinatown in LA is like an old folks town. Hardly seen any young citizen walking around there. The shops & streets are all occupied by old folks. There is not much attraction over here other than the main gate and fliming area. Movie like rush hour 2 by Jackie Chan and freaky friday.


Fliming area of Rush Hour 2 & Freaky Friday. The statue beside me is the Dr. Sun Yat Sen.

Hill & Alpine intersection.

Guess what. I don't think this can be implemented in Malaysia. I can imagine people could just pay RM1.00 and take all the paper inside :-)
