About the Hunt
The Chinese New Year Treasure Hunt is an urban adventure game played on the streets of Chinatown, North Beach & Telegraph Hill. It’s a scavenger hunt in which teams solve clues leading to off-the-beaten-track locations with historical,artistic & cultural connections.
Each clue leads to a location within a square mile area, where players must find & use a piece of information to answer a question. The information could be written on an historical plaque, a detail in a mural or public art, a discussion in t architectural feature or a business sign. Something you might never notice if you weren’t looking for it.
The treasure hunt is a fun exercise in visual awareness that hones observation skills & makes you aware of your environment. Participants often discover memorable sights they’d passed by hundreds of times & overlooked.
Due the heavy El Nino enhanced rains in February, the 2016 Chinese New Year Treasure Hunt was postponed until September. It will be held during the Chinatown Autumn Moon Festival.
