Condensed into 46 square miles, 125 square kilometres, it can be found at the tip of the San Francisco Peninsula. The "Bay Area" contains the nine counties that each touch the San Francisco Bay. It has a range of culturally diverse and unrivalled attractions such as its museums, art galleries and unique neighbourhoods and communities such as Chinatown, Haight-Ashbury and others. The world-famous and iconic Golden Gate Bridge can be seen from the Festival base. The city's ethnic and cultural diversity can be experienced in its various sites, shops, and restaurants.
