I lived in San Francisco for 4 years so I enjoy visiting Chinatown areas for comparison whenever I'm in other large cities. I was with my husband and 26 year old stepdaughter and we decided to walk from Gastown to this area and visit the...More
The Gardens themselves are not bad. However, first the price is way to high and second, half the gardens are free and there is no mention of that. You wouldn't be missing much if you skipped the pay part and just went to the open...More
This was a nice place to visit. You can experience some of the garden for free. There is one pond and gazebo that is not inside the pay area. So if you are not a big fan of Chinese gardens you could visit that part....More

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
diners to the table. More that that, it has a hip experimental vibe to it, with trendy pop-ups and catchall market shops. The biggest of Canada's Chinatowns, it is also home to an expansive Chinese garden whose manicured grounds inspire and delight, its ponds and pagodas drawing walkers in for an stroll. Take in the red streetlights, the playful awnings, and the upbeat air that suffuse this area.
