Symbol of Montréal diversity
An historic area
Montréal’s Chinatown is one of the oldest Asian districts in North America, emerging in the second half of the 19th century. Famous for its lively atmosphere and amalgamation of Eastern cultures, its heart is located a few steps away from the Palais des congrès on St. Laurent and de La Gauchetière. A traditional arch called a paifang welcomes you to this lively area of the city.
