Welcome in 2012's Year of the Dragon. In 2012 it will fall on 23 January, with celebrations taking place in cities right across the world. Paris has a thriving and influential French-Chinese community, and its Chinatown is the largest in Europe, situated in the south of the city centre's 13th arrondissement, and known as the Quartier Chinois. There are smaller Chinatown communities in other parts of the city, too, but Quartier Chinois is the best place for processions of dancers and musicians, and vividly coloured dragons.

 

Enjoy your visit!
