Chinatown, Havana

(1/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
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. By using our Havana holiday planner, you can arrange your visit to Chinatown and other attractions in Havana.

  • I went twice in the restaurant which is to the right on entering the so-called Chinatown (in fact held by Cubans) and each time they gave me scrawled, illegible, additions with an exaggerated amount (in addition to the 10% surcharge for service and 10% tax "food, which I've never heard in Cuba") (, and excesives for supplements increases). With of course, big smile from the waitress who said have miscounted... I read on one blog that it is practical in the restaurants in the area

  • It is not the typical Chinese quarter in other countries. Here blows the Cuban with the Chinese. Almost all Chinese who live in the neighborhood are descendants of Chinese who came to early and mid-20th century. The district has had an urban resuscitation and several restaurants can be found. Anyway is a place to visit but not forced. The most central area is in the ditch and Ray.
