Paris' Second Chinatown

Paris is unique for having not one, but two distinct Chinatowns, and this is the newer of the two. Located in the 20th arrondissement, Belleville has traditionally been a place where many foreign immigrants have chosen to settle, including Jews, Armenians, Arabs and Africans. With this in mind, the area is very diverse and the addition of the new Chinatown in the 1980s is further proof to that fact. Here you’ll find a quieter atmosphere, but with the same authentic Chinese shops and some delicious (and very affordable) Chinese restaurants. The Chinese New Year celebration takes place on a different day than the one in the original Chinatown, making it easy to catch the festivities twice in one trip.
