A place to lose yourself, it's a beautiful neighborhood, from the metro station to the cemetery, there are beautiful and mythical corners emblematic of Paris. The shops, the art galleries, the pubs, the boulangeries (bakeries), the small squares, the Sacre Coeur Basilica, the Place du Tertre, everything is beautiful and wholly Parisian. The bohemian air and the artistic diversity really make it beautiful to behold. Very recommendable.
This is an eclectic mix of styles, flavors, and people. The Latin Quarter is, for me, like a second home; I feel right in my element. I guess it helps that my roommate is from Paris.
Lights, colors, crowds, and history, oh so much history! This is where you can explore Medieval Paris, feel the spirit of 1960’s Paris, or check out Nôtre Dame nearby. This is the soul of the City of Light! Wild nights, concert halls, pubs, and restaurants of every stripe…it’s like exploring the entire world in only a matter of blocks.
This is a more accessible Paris filled with students from La Sorbonne. A veritable Tower of Babel. I love the Latin Quarter, perhaps because it’s the least “stuffy” in the city. Touristy, yes, but what isn’t in Paris?
Chinatown is the Chinatown of Paris, a neighborhood fairly extensive organized between Ivry Avenue and Avenue de Choisy, in the 13th district of the capital. It is a fairly recent quarter, which is characterized by large skyscrapers of 30 to 40 stories, and where you find most of the Asian population of Paris. There are a multitude of Asian food stores, imported products for home and general consumption, and restaurants of every country in the region. It is surprising because there are many things written only in Chinese. Buy cheap tickets to Asia and also DVDs and CDs of Asian music. McDonalds is installed on Avenue de Choisy shaped like a pagoda. You can see several shows throughout the year, the most important is the Chinese New Year Parade
This area of high towers, with shops in the form of pagodas, is called Les Olympiades, and now the line 14 was extended to reach the neighborhood of 13 district of Paris. Great for taking pictures! Mine are not exceptional, but many lovers of photography love the urban details and modern architecture mixed with Chinese cultural influences. At 7 in the morning you find Chinese retirees doing Tai Chi and at 9 the students from the nearby University of Tolbiac (Sorbonne), and a little later the workers return home. The base of the towers has been covered for a plaza with shops, where children come to skate. It doesn't seem like Paris.
