In the Netherlands (16 mill inh.) there are about 90.000 people of Chinese origin. 35% are real Chinese , speaking Mandarin or Cantonese languages, furthermore 23 % are Chinese from Hong Kong, 20% are immigrated from Indonesia, 6% are from the former Dutch colony of Surinam, from other countries is only 16%.


Chinese people merged nearly without any problems in Dutch society with their families. Cities like Rotterdam and The Hague have their own Chinatowns and trading centers. Chinese food is very common in the Netherlands, often twice a week...

In the city where I live, there are a few Chinese people, about 150 (in Leeuwarden, pop. 92.000). They have always something to do with agriculture or working in restaurants. The largest house in my neighbourhood is owned by a Chinese (Cantonese) restaurantholder. His biggest restaurant, called `The long Chinese Wall` is a nice place to eat and only a 5 minute-walk from my home. :)

I would bet on it being New York. Although San Fransisco has a very large chinese population along with Toronto.

Im only consiering North American cities though, so i may be wrong.

I'm getting annoyed of these 2001 numbers. Thankfully the next census takes place within the next couple months. Should be interesting.

Largest?
Probably Los Angeles/London.

In the Phillippines, 3% of the population or about 2.8 million people are pure Chinese.
Another 30% are mixed Chinese.

In Cebu City, the mayor claims that almost all families have traces of Chinese blood in them. Most Chinese came before the communist revolution from Fujian province. Before that during the Spanish colonial era, only men could come and thus the larged mixed population.

Officially less than 300,000 in the UK, of which around 2/3 are in London, but add to this permanent resident figure the tens of thousands of Chinese students and illegal immigrants you can only speculate what the actual total is for London at any one time.

I'd guess at perhaps 400,000 for London?

Illegal immigration is also a major problem in the US. The official numbers for New York is probably way off from the real population.
Yes. Most of the illegal Chinese though are thought to reside in Manhattan's Lower East Side, the primary destination for Chinese entering the NYC metro.That is why even though Manhattan's registered Chinese population is 86,000 estimates range from 150,000-350,000 meaning there are between 64,000 and 264,000 illegal Chinese in Manhattan.

Liverpool has Europe's oldest Chinatown, and there a fair few naturalised Liverpudlians of Chinese decent... mostly they don't live around the Chinatown anymore though, they have spread out all over the suburbs, as for first and second generation Chinese, there are quite a few, mainly students I'd say Chinese make up the largest ethnic minority in Liverpool after Carribeans (pretty much all of whom are naturalised British) and probably ahead of Indians.

As for the biggest Chinese population outside of Asia, London/North American cities wouldn't be a bad bet... how about Moscow though, or maybe some Australian cities?
