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

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

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.

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
