... an interesting area to the canal close by. The area close to the Gare du Nord was at first dominated by Indian shops, then went to Sri Lankan, than around the corner went to some Muslim, even a few Chinese. Main part of the Bassin de la Villette Canal is lovely with restaurants and cafés lining each side and with gardens and play areas for children, as well as areas for organised sports.
