Tour Description

Paris Pékin Urban Walk

Explore one of Paris’ vibrant, lesser-known neighborhoods on this off the beaten path walk from the esplanade of Les Olympiades to Boulevard Masséna. Experience the unique character of the 13th arrondissement, where Parisian culture blends with the knowledge and traditions of Southeast Asia. Home to many Chinese, Vietnamese, Laotian, and Cambodian natives, the “Triangle de Choisy” in the 13th arrondissement remains the city’s iconic Asian district, and many flock to the area to visit its impressive temples and churches as well as to take advantage of the great shopping opportunities. With Migrantour, get an insider’s look into this dynamic community and discover what daily life in Paris’ 13th arrondissement is like.

This tour is operated by Association Bastina, a certified responsible, fair trade tour operator managing Migrantour programs in the Île-de-France region.
