My family visited this place as we didn't have anywhere else to go that day, we actually went to Chinatown but since the map says Gastown was just nearby we gave it a go. One can easily tell that its already the Gastown as it was written in the reviews that its an old town, so the vibe it gives was like the old Canada perhaps, the Victorian-styled buildings, the classically styled lamp posts with big chains, the potted plants, and the cobbled stone roads. We looked for Gassy Jack's monument and the steam clock, its worth for photo ops. Its drizzling a bit so the effect is like Sherlocky Holmes :) yes the reviews are true, there were a lot of homeless peeps over ther, they meant no harm, some looked like they were hign on some stuffs as they were dancing, prancing, rapping in the streets but they just do their stuffs without disturbing us, we saw a van with foods and they were distributing it to some of the folks. its quite safe, there's a lot of nice looking old England style restos and shops too.
