CHINATOWN OFFERS SUMMER-LONG WALKING TOURS



Chicago, IL, April 1, 2010 - Chicago Chinese Cultural Institute is offering summer long one-hour Chinatown walking tours on every weekend starting from May 1 to October 31, 2010. “A lot of people come to Chinatown every year. But they eat, shop and leave. They don’t normally get to know the history and culture behind this community. ” said Z.J. Tong, president of Chicago Chinese Cultural Institute. “We are offering this tour to make it educational, informative and fun for those who visit Chinatown this summer.”



Some of the highlights of this one-hour walking tour include Nine Dragon Wall, Chinatown Gate, the landmark On-Leong Merchants Association Building, Wentworth Ave. historical commercial street, a Buddhist Temple, St. Therese Catholic Church where Al Capon’s mother used to go to, and the Chinatown Zodiac Square, etc. The tour will also touch on Chinese culture and Chinese American history in Chicago.



Tours start at 2130 S. Wentworth Ave., in front of the New Three Happiness Restaurant at 10:30a.m.on every Saturday and Sunday between May 1 and to Oct. 31, 2010 with certain exceptions. Tours will last approximately one hour and require a walking distance of about six blocks. Advance registration required. Prices are $8/adult and $4/child under ten years of age.

Private group tour is also available.



Chicago Chinese Cultural Institute (CCCI) was founded in 2005 and is engaged in promoting Chinese language and culture in Chicago as well as cultural exchange programs between Chicago and China. Z.J. Tong, founder and president of CCCI started the Chinatown tour program 9 years ago and has trained many tour guides and given tours to more than 20,000 people.
