Chinatown, Montreal

2.1
#8 of 19 in Neighborhoods in Montreal
Find the heart of Montreal's Asian communities at Chinatown, a long-established area giving visitors a taste of the Far East. Browse the many stores and stalls selling food products, trinkets, and clothes from China and elsewhere in Asia. Stop off in one of the many eateries, selling everything from Cantonese seafood dishes to Korean barbecue, dim sum, and pho. First established in 1877, the neighborhood has been officially deemed a tourist area, meaning its businesses can stay open long into the evening, and making the area a popular nightlife haunt.

    Chinatown here is very clean and delicious authentic Chinese food, variety, and I enjoy it very much! I've been to different parts of the city, but it the first clean, the price is not expensive.

Where to stay in Montreal

If beautiful architecture and views over the water appeal, stay in the historic neighborhood of Vieux Montreal (Old Montreal), where you'll be a stone's throw from the best attractions in the city. If modern convenience is more important to you, look for accommodations in the downtown neighborhood of Centre-Ville, or head a bit farther out to the artsy district of Plateau Mont-Royal. LGBTI visitors might want to consider staying in The Village, Montreal's famously progressive hub of gay and lesbian culture.
