Situated on the Left Bank of the River Seine, it is home to Paris's principal Asian community, the Quartier Asiatique, located in the southeast of the arrondissement in an area that contains many high-rise apartment buildings. The neighborhood...more
We stayed in this area for 9 nights. Its a short ride from the center of Paris. It's quite safe, and has a few good cafes and patisseries nearby. I also ran along the river in the morning which was lovely!
Lots to see here, all off the beaten path. The charming neighborhood of Butte Aux Cailles has been discovered, good for a stroll. Check out Les Olympiads, a forest of high rise apartments that constitute one of Paris' Chinatowns. Then there is the new town...More
We went on some tours and they started from this district. We walked around Place de Italie. This district looked so different than the rest of Paris. It didn’t have the historical feel and seemed like a regular modern city. It’s not for tourist so...More
So far, the 13 arrondissement was one of the very few Paris arrondissements that had almost no sight of interest. Parisians and travelers came for Asian restaurants in Chinatown on Avenue de Choisy and Avenue d’Ivry. That was it. Now look around as you ride...More
Love this area of Paris - it's cheaper than the central areas for accommodation and food but it's really up and coming as more and more apartment blocks are updated and it becomes a more popular area. Everything you'd expect from Chinatown

We lived in the 13th for 6 weeks. I must say that I never got really comfortable with the area. Most of the district was bulldozed back in the 1960's for high rise apartments for an influx of asians comming to the city, hence it...More
The 13th Arrondissement was visited regularly by us during our stay in Paris due to its proximity to our hotel at Place d’Italie.
There’s plenty of restaurants and cafes to grab a bite to eat, a nice shopping centre and markets a few times a...More
Far off the beaten path, this part of Paris is a forgotten gem worth exploring. Avenue d’Ivry houses Europe's largest Chinatown with great Asian supermarkets and shops, and a thrilling atmosphere around Chinese New Year. Place d’Italie impresses onlookers as soon as they set their eyes on it. Not far, around La Butte aux Cailles, the streets suddenly imitate provincial France and you’ll feel like you’ve
been transported. The beauty of these streets lies in their surprises around every twist and turn.
