Moving to China in Paris away from the “Quartier Chinois” ?

Although everybody talks about the great Chinese neighborhood in Paris in the 13th arrondissement, I have never been to that location yet. But I have discovered several places where you suddenly feel that you have moved from the french and Parisian architecture to a fully Chinese one without even travelling to China !

Maison Loo – Pagoda Paris

In the heart of Paris, in Rue de Courcelles, you suddenly feel the contrast between a huge Parisian building next to a typical Chinese house. This building called “Pagoda Paris” and also “Maison Loo” was a private museum until it became a private house not opened for visits. It is super interesting to take a picture in the middle of the street to show the difference between the two types of architecture.

Pavillon Chinois

Not far away from Paris, the “Pavillon Chinois” is located in the Isle-Adam region of Ile-de-France. About one hour in public transport from Paris, and then a twenty minutes walk from the station, you will reach the hilarious Pavillon Chinois in which you will suddenly feel in China. The architecture of the structure is amazing with two lions statues and a kind of small lake behind it. Unfortunately, the pavillon was closed with barriers with no access, but the picture is worth the visit.
