Description

The 13th district has a strong chinese community. "Chinatown" is home to shops selling exotic fruits and products with mysterious names, but also to restaurants to which the local Asian community flocks because the Asian food served is typical and better than that found elsewhere in Paris. The website of your guide - 716lavie.com - is one of the food blogs that has recommended the most typical, delicious and cheap restaurants in this part of Paris.

You can also find churches and Asian temples here. A visit to the 13th arrondissement is like taking an exotic trip without leaving France.

But the 13th also has another face : there used to be a high concentration of tanners here, working leather on the banks of the "Bièvre", which has since dried up. there are the housing estates and villas.
Hidden from the rest of the 13th arrondissement, La "Butte aux Cailles" is a small village within the town. Its tiny streets that lead  to a kind of village square give it a unique atmosphere.

This tour is guided by Guillaume Le Roux.

This guided tour is conducted in English.
