Havana’s Chinatown, a symbol of the presence of Chinese culture in Cuba, is one of the hot spots for leisure in the city.

According to experts, that area is an excellent place to enjoy a wide range of gastronomic options from the Asian country, in an atmosphere characterized by the predominance of such colors as red and golden.

In Chinatown, there is room for Chinese traditional martial arts, which are practiced by people of all ages.

The descendants of the first Chinese who arrived in Cuba are faithful to the their ancestors’ traditions and celebrate All Saint’s Day, when they pay tribute to the dead at the Chinese Cemetery in Havana.

Generally, Cuban-based Chinese keep the traditions, festivities, artistic expressions, typical costumes and religion brought by their ancestors from the Asian country many years ago.

Artistic creation is promoted by the Hua Qu society, which is made up of 40 artists who are developing a project to boost Chinese plastic arts.
