$2.8M Investment in Barrio Chino

Casco Viejo, Santa Ana, Barrio Chino, Panama


Good news for Santa Ana, this time coming from Barrio Chino. Starting this week, the City´s office will be investing $2.8M in this historic site. This is the second large infrastructure investment from the government in Santa Ana. On the opposite side, Puerta Norte, and now Barrio Chino. See this for the full note: Alcaldía aquí.

And if you´d like to know more about the history and legacy of the Chinese community in Panama, here is an article from Panama´s National Library with a great summary. It is in Spanish, but perhaps Google translator can help!  Article here .

And, if you´d like to come and taste their delicious food, we´ll give you here two places to visit:  in San Felipe you´ll find Oh My Bao and in Santa Ana is the  legendary Kwang Chow.
