    Chinatown

    We just quickly walked by Chinatown on our way to a few army surplus'. Apparently Chinatown is more active during the summer when everyone brings there stands outside. There didn't seem to be much going on in the start of March thats for sure. I will revisit next time I go during the summer.

    Pedestrian Street off Rue St Urbain in Chinatown

    Montreal's Chinatown at it's most interesting is walking through some of it's pedestrian thoroughfares between some of the larger boulevards. This street, between Rue St. Urbain and Rue St. Laurent, is lined with small intimate restaurants with narrow outdoor patios and curious shops selling everything from traditional medicinces to fortune telling.

    Homeless people, sometimes, make a bed for themselves smack in the middle of the street.

    Well, it's not as big as the one in Toronto, but it's a cute little section of Montreal, it's right by St. Catherines (what isn't!?), and is marked by a cute Chinese arc....little restaurants and shops...

    The Chinese first came to Montréal in large numbers after 1880, following the construction of the transcontinental railroad. They settled in an 18-block area between boulevard René-Lévesque and avenue Viger to the north and south, and near rues Hôtel de Ville and Bleury on the west and east, an area now full of restaurants, food stores, and gift shops.

    Chinatown. All the great cities have one!
    This area is full of restaurants and shops. You'll find an eclectic mix of people strolling through the area; from tourists to locals who know where to get great Asian food.

    Chinatown. Although my mom and I decided not to eat here, we did have a good time walking through and looking around! Chinatown is just a short walk from Notre Dame and then you can continue your short walk to one of the main restaurant strips.

    Walking distance from Montreal Downtown (about 20 minutes).
    Kind of small but it's worth the visit, dine in one of the many restuarants there,or buy yourself a souvenir from the many retail shops.
