Chinatown!

Hi everyone! Did you know that Vancouver has the second largest Chinatown in North America? Chinatown was established even before the lower mainland population was incorporated into the city we know and love. While it has been the center of Chinese culture in Vancouver for more than a century, it is only incidentally a tourist attraction. It doesn’t dress up for visitors, and this is part of its charm. You’ll find things here you’ll have a hard time finding anyplace else in Vancouver.

A variety of food items, both exotic and familiar, can be purchased around the neighborhood. It is not unusual to spot Chinese delicacies, like pig snouts, on display at local butcher shops. From street side markets to family-run restaurants, a visit to Chinatown ensures a culinary experience

So if you’re interested, maybe want to do some shopping , the easiest way to get to Chinatown from downtown is to go east on Pender Street to Carrall Street. If you go by car try to find parking on this street. You can also park in the International Village Parkade at the corner of Pender and Abbott and walk east on Pender and into Chinatown.

Have fun!
