The 13th arrondissement of Paris (13e arrondissement de Paris) is one of the 20 arrondissements of Paris (France). It is located on the left bank of the Seine. It is surrounded by the 14th arrondissement to the west and the 5th arrondissement to the north. To the south, it communicates, beyond the ring road, with the municipalities of Val-de-Marne, from west to east Gentilly, Le Kremlin-Bicêtre and Ivry-sur-Seine. The Seine borders the arrondissement to the east, separating it from the 12th arrondissement and the Right Bank.

It is home to Paris’s principal Asian community, the Quartier Asiatique, located in the southeast of the arrondissement in an area that contains many high-rise apartment buildings. The neighbourhood features a high concentration of Chinese and Vietnamese businesses.
