Went over the canal to go into china town and its GONE. Just concrete buildings Chinese seem to have gone and replaced by West indians The whole of Cayenne is now full of them, never seen Cayenne so busy and busseling with loads of people and cars

Been up Place de palmistes at day break sunset many times and there is NO stalls selling anything. been there on every trip to Cayenne 3 times in 15 years and never seen any life in Place de Palmistes Dont know who writes these guides to Cayennne but dont think they have ever been here

the taxi collectifs will drop you off near this chinatown but there is nothing to see or do there. just tiny grocery stores and cheap clothes and household goods. it has a menacing, unpleasant feel to the place.

I went expecting it to be rubbish and still left disappointed!

If you are expecting something like Canal Street in Manhattan or Gerrard Street in London you may be somewhat disappointed.

From what I saw this is just the area of Cayenne where there are lots of Chinese people (still couldn't see a Chinese homeless). Thats it.

Dont bother, this is not an attraction!
