Arranged around Avénue de Choisy, Avénue d'Ivry, and Rue de Tolbiac in the 13th arrondissement near Place d'Italie, the Quartier Chinois (aka Quartier Asiatique) is Europe's largest Chinatown. And while it may not be quite as classically picturesque as the others on this list, it still offers a fascinating cultural experience with a particularly French twist in the form of various businesses run by immigrants of former Indochina colonies Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. One must stop is an unforgettable sensory experience at Tang Frères (48 Avénue d'Ivry), one of the continent's largest Asian markets, and I would also encourage visitors to sample probably unfamiliar cuisines such as Laoatian (for example at Lao Lane Xiang, 102 Ave. d'Ivry) and Cambodian (Mondol Kiri, 159 Ave. de Choisy).
