Las Vegas Chinatown

Las Vegas Chinatown is very exciting. It started with just one mall, The Chinatown Plaza, created by Taiwanese-American developer 陳誌誠 Chen Chih-Cheng (James) in the mid 90's. This model, the first of its kind has been labeled a "Modern" Chinatown and has since been copied in other cities, such as Atlanta, Dallas, North Miami Beach, the California's San Gabriel Valley to name a few.

Which casino is it in? 

Las Vegas is the most misconceived place on the planet and its Chinatown, most do not even know exists. Las Vegas has a "real" Chinatown? Yes. And and amazing one in fact.

You won't see buildings built before world war two in an already existing city, converted into Asian shops, but what you will see are buildings 
and strip malls featuring traditional style Tong Dynasty Architecture. Each mall ​filled with authentic​ Chinese and Pan-Asian restaurants, 
traditional medicine stores and 100's and 100's of other Chinese/Asian based businesses. Vegas Chinatown is occasionally referred to as the 
"Asian District" or simply "Spring Mountain" . You won't see block after block of fake luxury goods being peddled or fresh fish and produce 
on tables outside, but inside the 6+ large Asian supermarkets in Vegas Chinatown, one of the nations largest selections can be found.
