The Chinese built underground communities after immigrating to the US in hopes of finding gold during the Gold Rush. They were treated poorly and were forced to go underground. The tour is amazing. The guide was entertaining. You will see the opium dens and Chinese jails, and learn of the illegal activities that took place there. You will also take a tour of the "cozy rooms," brothels operated during that time. A reservation is best. The phone number is 800/226-6398.
