#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.

  • There are lots and lots of good restaurants from all over Asia : China, Japan, Vietnam, Corea... But not a good place to buy souvenirs, too little and too expensive.  more »
  • It's a disappointment. For those who know the chinatown of New York City and San Francisco this doesn't deserve a visit.

  • Nice small Asian district in downtown Montreal, with Asian shops and restaurants. This neighborhood is very quickly.

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.
