Ferry Building Marketplace
Gourmets’ pulses start to race when they enter the Ferry Building Marketplace.

You will also find all varieties of superfood like kale, acai berries or chia seeds. And - for cooking enthusiasts - nice kitchen equipment and recipe books.
This boutique in the middle of the pretty Hayes Valley shopping district is all about travelling in style and comfort. It has in-flight comfort kits, travel cosmetics, travel guides, luggage, packing aids, eye masks, anti-jetlag products, adapters – in short, just about everything necessary to make travelling pleasant and stylish. A must for great travellers.
This high-end department store has been providing the people of San Francisco with furnishings, porcelain, trendy clothing, jewellery and bathroom items since 1861. To this day, the offer speaks of the establishment’s excellent taste – it even sells antiques. A treasure trove of rare cosmetic and fashion labels, lifestyle accessories and much more.
Red Blossom Tea Company
The minimalist oasis among the colourful bustle of Chinatown offers the finest Chinese teas – white ones, green ones, black ones, oolongs and pu-erhs, as well as lovely traditional and modern teat sets and utensils. Peter Luong, the owner’s son, demonstrates how to steep, serve and enjoy tea according to the ancient Chinese tradition.
One of the most typical sights in San Francisco, and you simply have to ride them at least once: the cable cars. They have been in operation for 134 years, and are listed on the USA’s National Register of Historic Places. If you haven’t travelled at least one of the three cable car routes, then you haven’t really been to San Francisco. The lines are the Powell-Hide line, the Powell-Mason line and the California St. line.
