From birth to death, traditional customs surround the life of the early Chinese immigrant. Whether it is getting fortunes told by a fortune teller, a brief teaching of ying and yang of Chinese medicine, carrying a red umbrella at a wedding, or burning paper mansions at a funeral, come discover the reasons behind each practice while you explore the many Chinese customs in this journey.

Walk through the "old" Chinatown. Visit the wet market and check out fresh produce that must be prepared for women after birth. At the quaint Wedding Shop, our guide will show you the betrothal gifts that are sent to the bride's family to confirm the marriage agreement between two families.

How do the Chinese honor their ancestors? At this special shop one may buy paper effegies of money or other gifts to be burnt with offerings of food and incense to honor the dead.

Tour ends at Heritage Brand Shop for tea appreciation and traditional wedding pastries.
