Chinatown, Montreal, Quebec

Viger street, Saint-Urbain street, René-Lévesque boulevard and Saint-Laurent boulevard

Chinatown of Montreal

Ville de Montréal

Every great city has its Chinatown and Montreal’s no different. Located not too far from the Old Port, with many entrances (Viger street, Saint-Urbain street, René-Lévesque boulevard and Saint-Laurent boulevard) on St-Laurent Boulevard lies a beautiful eastern sight: great “Paifangs” (portals) with fairly sized Chinese sculptures, given by the Chinese government. And you better think twice if you think that only Asian people dwells here: the beauty of our Chinatown , the way it is so in sync with the “motherland” life style while being open to western culture is very seductive and it’s wonderful place to hang out, relax ( relaxation classes  not far from a plaza in La Gauchetière street, lounges and such) and explore.

Here is the soundwalk for this section of the city. Enjoy :)
