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 features a high concentration of ethnic Chinese and Vietnamese businesses. The 13th arrondissement also hosts the Bibliothèque François Mitterrand and the newly built business district of Paris Rive Gauche.

The 13th Arrondissement or district is home to a large Asian community with many Chinese and Vietnamese restaurants. Excellent area to come and eat.

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

During our visit to Paris, we stayed on the 13th Arrondissement near Bibliotheque Francois-Mitterand. Modern and stylish buildings, shops and cinemas, shopping and restaurants, all is there along the Seine. Less congested than the Center of Paris, yet not so far from everything. In addition,...More

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

This arrondissement is towards the south of the city. Not as historic and looks like an average modern district

On a March 2017 trip to Paris, I learned of murals that have been fairly recently painted on various buildings throughout the 13th Arrondissement. The mayor of the 13th -- Jerome Coumet -- has been the force behind the creation of some 28 colorful works...More

The Buttes aux Cailles is one of Paris' most loves and interesting out-of-the-way neighborhoods. And this is just one of the wonders of the 13th. Check out Les Olympiades for the picture of Paris as a Southeast Asia immigrant neighborhood. Wander around.

Chill place, home for some chinese immigrants, not very commercial. Good for staying for a lower price, but bear in mind that you'll need to take a couple of subways/ trains/ buses or whatever means of transportation to get to the touristic spots.

Europe's largest Chinatown with great Asian

around Chinese New Year. Place d’Italie impresses
onlookers as soon as they set their eyes on it. Not
