Chinatown (Quartier Chinois) - Montreal

District Profile

Sometimes referred to as “Chinablock” (due to its dimunitive size), this neighborhood is sandwiched between Downtown Montreal and Old Montreal.

Chinatown is certainly worth a brief (passing) visit, if only to enjoy the festive and somewhat chaotic atmosphere that reigns there on weekends. There are, however, no major landmarks or attractions in the neighborhood (unless one counts the traditional Chinese-style gates that mark the edges of the neighborhood as landmarks, which we don’t).
