We visited the Chinatown without prior knowledge that it's right next to the notorious Vancouver east side that's considered one of the bad neighborhoods. We started noticing some homeless people but pretty soon the whole area is full of them. One was even harassing a couple of guys waiting for the bus and they eventually called the cops, which arrived minutes later. We didn't feel it's a dangerous place to be, just unpleasant to see the whole area being so run down and full of homeless people loitering, can't be helpful to the tourism. For this reason, public restrooms at McDonald's or Tim, etc. are all locked with cctv guarding the doors!
