Oklahoma City's Asian District, also known as "Little Saigon," is home to the state's largest population of Asian descendants, predominately Vietnamese.  Visitors flock to this district for international cuisine, culture and shopping.  The Asian District is located off Classen Boulevard between Northwest 23rd Street and Northwest 30th Street and is anchored by the Gold Dome building off 23rd.  Bordered by Oklahoma City University to the west and the Paseo Arts District to the east, Oklahoma City's Chinatown is right in the middle of the city's downtown action.  Keep an eye out for the district's famous landmark, the Milk Bottle Building.  Built in 1910, this popular Route 66 photo-op is a nearly triangular building with a giant milk bottle on top featuring the logo for the Oklahoma dairy company Braum's.

Visit the Oklahoma City Asian District for scores of restaurants, Asian retail boutiques, supermarkets and Asian-oriented service outlets that cater to the district's large Asian population as well as tourists.  Businesses in this district include the immense Super Cao Nguyen market, Lido restaurant and a number of pho soup kitchens.  Visitors will find everything from traditional Hong Kong dim sum to Taiwanese bubble tea.

Oklahoma City's Asian District began to form in 1975 when thousands of Vietnamese refugees came to Oklahoma's capital after the fall of Saigon.  In the years since 1975, the Vietnamese, Chinese and other Asian-American cultures started businesses in Little Saigon and have transformed the Classen Boulevard strip into a lively international neighborhood.  Today, Oklahoma City's Asian District is often considered somewhat of an Asian oasis in the south-central United States.
