Best Sign Atlanta Isn’t Like the Rest of Georgia

Buford Highway

Staff Pick

BUFORD HIGHWAY is Atlanta’s Chinatown. It’s also our Koreatown, our Vietnamtown, our Mexicotown and many more. To some, Buford Highway is just a shopping and restaurant district — a place to get a bowl of pho on a Friday night, or a place to pick up stalks of fresh lemongrass for a Thai recipe you’re making at home. Buford Highway’s much more than food and shopping, though. It’s the living, breathing fulfillment of Atlanta’s oft-stated desire to be an international city instead of just a provincial capital.
