Great way to get over the river

And a great way to take a great walk into old port, on a sunny day! And many ferries back and forth so you can come back easily to a low cost! I recommend that way of travelling

I really enjoyed this part of Montréal because it had a sense of peace and freedom to it. I visited around Fall so there were so many beautiful colourful trees everywhere. I enjoyed walking alongside the harbour and taking my time to take photos in the fresh air. I recommend climbing the clock tower which overlooks the harbour, port, bridge... More

I am sure it is amazing to have walks there in summer time but in winter it is quite boring and I would not recommend as something you must see

The Old Port is one of the top places to wander during the summer months. Located just adjacent to Old Montreal ( Vieux Montreal) there are activities for all ages. Parking can be an issue, but there are digital signs directing one to the nearest parking lot that has vacancies. During the Fireworks Festival during the summer it provides a... More

I understand and realize that your city is re-vamping the port of Montreal to accommodate cruise ships which will bring much needed revenue to the city BUT..that creepy old grain factory is so unappealing to your beautiful waterfront view. Knock it down!

We got on the ferry to parc Jean Drapeau to cycle around a bit over there. Ferry leaves only every hour. Price was about $12 retun (if I remember correctly). If you have a bicycle, you can take that on the ferry. Otherwise there are bicycles from Bixi on the island as well. Ferry takes only 10 minutes to get... More

The old port is a messy array of fenced off construction, run down playgrounds, poorly kept park areas. We were warned by friends and its not worth the effort unless you must get to the rive. good jogging though

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Bakeries, markets, restaurants, and buffets crowd the brightly graffitied streets of Chinatown, the city's aromatic destination for pan-Asian cuisine. Distinguished at its entry points by towering vermillion paifang gates, the compact neighbourhood acts as a focal point for the Chinese community, hectic with educational facilities, cultural centres, acupuncturists, and foreign-language newspapers. Especially vibrant in the warmer months, when the sweet smell of dragon beard candy along the pedestrian walks of Rue de la Gauchetière signal the beginning of the outdoor street fair season, Chinatown is a treasure hunter's dream, with enough knickknack and curiosity shops to tempt even the pickiest shoppers. The convivial vibe picks up after dark, when the area's active nightlife offers evening crowds their choice of drink, dance, and midnight snacks of pho or oysters. Chinatown's mix of new and old, with herbal remedies being sold alongside pop-culture DVDs, gives the area its own animated brand of moxie.
