The 13th arrondissement of central Paris is primarily a residential and business district in the south-eastern part of the French capital, lying on the Left Bank of the river Seine. It holds several attractions of interest to the traveller that include the recently-completed Bibliothèque Nationale de France (National Library), now part of a major new development of the Paris Rive Gauche district, the second large-scale urbanism project inside the city of Paris. To the west of the PRG along avenue de Tolbiac is the first of these urbanism projects, Les Olympiades, with its raised esplanade and the latest of the Paris Meteor (high-speed metro) stops, Les Olympiades. The southern part of the arrondissement is the "China town" of Paris, one of the biggest in Europe.

  • The Chinese quarter of Paris is a city within a city. It seems to be in China, but in another dimension, that is a reflection of China's projected onto another Earth. Under majestic skyscrapers discover the East Parisian and amazing shops. A high quantity of Oriental restaurants and food ... so much food to us Westerners completely unknown. In short, a paradise for the curious stands like me.
