Richmond & Steveston Village Tour
Heading south from Vancouver in this tour we will start by visiting the beautiful Queen Elizabeth Park. Located at the highest natural point in Vancouver its views are breathtaking. It also holds the Sunken Gardens with a variety of flowers. From there we will keep heading south to the suburb of Richmond. Our first stop will be the International Buddhist Temple; this temple is considered as one of the best examples of Chinese temple construction outside of China. It is also the second-largest Buddhist temple in North America. After spending some time walking this beautiful temple we will head to Steveston Village. This village was a salmon-canning hotspot, and today is home to Canada’s largest active fishing fleet.
You will have the option to visit two National Historic Sites: the Gulf of Georgia Cannery and Britannia Shipyards if you wish. You can also just walk its pier, eat the delicious fish and chips, or go shopping. After having spent some time there, we will head back to the city driving by one of Richmond’s busiest streets, showing you how today it is considered the “new Chinatown” of Vancouver.
