Next door to Vancouver and nestled where the Pacific Ocean and the Fraser River meet is the city of Richmond, BC, home to the iconic Richmond Olympic Oval, 26 brand-name hotels and the Vancouver International Airport. This thriving multicultural destination city offers a growing range of cultural, heritage, culinary and leisure experiences for all ages and abilities.

This is a city of contrasts where the Far East meets the West Coast. Waterfront boardwalks, a flourishing Asian culture, local farms, National Historic Sites, whale-watching tours, seaside trails and some of the best West Coast sunsets – there is so much to explore.

Taking your taste buds on an international journey is easy at one of Richmond’s 375+ Asian restaurants. The city is famous for having the best Chinese food outside of China, and the place to start is in the bustling Golden Village. You can eat your way through this authentically Asian district -- Vietnamese noodle soups, Malaysian curries, Chinese hotpot -- along Alexandra Road, nicknamed “Food Street” by locals. Within a four-block radius, there are 300+ shops and services including Asian specialty grocery stores, jewelry stores, art galleries and the latest designer fashions from Hong Kong, Tokyo and Taipei.

For a truly West Coast and heritage experience visitors must go to one of British Columbia’s most charming getaways, Steveston Village in the southwest corner of Richmond. In the early 1900s, Steveston was one of the busiest fishing ports in the world. Today it’s an exciting destination for West Coast shopping, dining, and entertainment. Stroll Fisherman’s Wharf, home to the largest commercial fishing fleet in Canada. Enjoy the views and local seafood at one of the waterfront patios along the wooden boardwalk. Go on a whale-watching adventure to see Orca Whales, porpoises, sea lions, eagles and other wildlife. Nearby Garry Point Park is a favourite with families thanks to its sandy beaches, picnic areas, kite flying conditions and spectacular summer sunsets.
