Boston’s Chinatown is rich with history, tradition, excitement, gifts, culture, and great food. Tourists flock from all over the world to see the Chinese culture behind Chinatown’s walls.

Chinatown Gate

The Chinatown Gate was constructed with contributions from the City of Boston’s Browne Fund and the Republic of China in 1983. The Gate was a gift from the Nationalist government in Taiwan. The four characters facing the highway read, “all under heaven is for the good of the people,” a quote by Dr. Sun Yet-sen. On the opposite side, the characters represent the four highest moral standards traditionally upheld by the “New Life Movement” launched during WWII based on Confucian values: propriety, justice, honesty, and humility.
