The Los Angeles Conservancy has partnered with Geotourist to provide several of its popular archived walking tours on audio. The audio guides will provide Angelenos and visitors the chance to explore Greater L.A.’s rich architectural history and culture right on their smartphones.
The first offering, featuring downtown L.A.’s Chinatown, guides visitors through one of L.A.’s oldest and most exciting neighborhoods which has seen an influx of popular culinary hotspots and art galleries.
Visitors will experience Central Plaza in the heart of New Chinatown. The tour includes decades-old shops selling traditional teas, medicines, and Chinese imports; and places of historic importance in the battle for Chinese-American civil rights. The tour highlights dining institutions such as Hop Louie and Empress Pavilion, and the site of Madame Wong’s, a hotspot for legendary punk bands in the 1970s and ’80s.
