#7 of 18 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.

  • Montreal's Chinatown is small, nowhere near the size of bigger ones like in San Francisco, New York or Toronto. On this visit it was very clean, especially since there wasn't food for sale on the side...  more »
  • Not very large, but a few good restaurants, junk shops, grocery stores. To see in the passage

  • Small chinatown, very narrow, but get there by foot after a long walk, in winter, and warm up in one of the many restaurants, for example with a nice soup, that's great. Choose the ones that you see most Chinese customers: are students, workers, and eat what they eat them. It will be yummy. Very close to Place des arts where you can find the Museum of contemporary art, and also close to a shopping complex, the complexe Dejardins

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.
