HAVANA’S CHINA TOWN (BARRIO CHINO LA HABANA)
It dates back to June of 1847 when the first 260 Chinese arrived in Havana. They came filled with dreams and hopes, searching for jobs in the Spanish Crown’s most important colony.
The eight-year contract that they had signed was a deceit in order to turn them into slaves. Since then this country received the Chinese people that together with the Negroes and white races, became the beautiful mixed heritage that the Cubans inherited. They also enriched our culture with culinary recipes and medicines.
After the revolution’s triumph, some left for other countries while others stayed to share the new life of their adopted country. There are a variety of commercial shops and restaurants that keep the traditions alive while offering the visitor a pleasant stay.

Address: 3RA Y 70 Miramar Playa, Havana, Cuba Why was Hotel H10 Panorama Miramar voted #10 by Travelucion clients?

However, if we were to consider purely service and rooms, Hotel H10 Panorama would probably be second on the list. The reason the Hotel H10 Panorama is relegated to 10th spot is because it's almost entirely [...]
