Started into China Town because I wanted to see the world's narrowest free standing office building. Stopped after just a few blocks and went back to Gastown. Too many homeless and druggies laying on all the sidewalks. Too much trash. Too much urine smell. Not...More

If you've ever been to San Francisco's Chinatown you will be very disappointed! No fascinating meat markets with bins of frogs and ducks hanging from the window...just a few interesting dried food and tea stores mixed in with apartments and businesses. This Chinatown is transitioning...More

Went to Chinatown looking forward to a nice dinner and was instead greeted with what looked like a run down part of Vancouver. Homeless people and druggies everywhere. Felt unsafe walking around the streets. Was shocked as I've never seen a Chinatown like this.

We visited on Canada Day and found the area to not be very busy. There are normal Chinese restaurants and some shops but not very big as compared to Chinatowns in other major cities.

Dirtiest place I’ve ever been to. It’s run down, dirty and smelly from dried seafood on sale. Most of the stores and restaurants are closed. I don’t know if it’s a poor neighborhood, but they should at least keep it clean. There is no beauty...More

Chinatown
With the recent exodus of massive new building
projects hitting the neighbourhood, Chinatown; which
has always been one of the city's most vibrant areas;
is even more buzzing and buoyant than ever before.
Playing host to some of the city's best pan-Asian
cuisine, from fusion food to traditional home-cooking,
Chinatown has remained faithful to its roots as a
space which clambers with shop signs and welcomes

Yes but there is hardly anything there and it’s very unsafe. Only has from what I saw there like 2 mini restaurants and 1 souvenir store. We got out of there within 10 mins of arrival. If you visit you will know what I mean.
