Chinatown, Havana

1.0
#10 of 11 in Neighborhoods in Havana
One of the oldest and largest of its kind in Latin America, Chinatown in Havana invites you to see how the 19th Century Chinese immigration affected the local area. It is now a shadow of its former glory with most of the Chinese moving out. Take a photo and then head past the traditional Chinese architectural gateway, Paifang, and take in the sight of tall buildings dominantly standing over the entrance to this part of the city.
