Richmond attracts visitors with its multicultural shopping and dining opportunities, and its unique historic and heritage sites. 

Here, you’ll find many attractions, including an Asian street-food night market, an International Buddhist Temple modelled after Beijing’s Forbidden City, and a bustling Chinese retail district called Golden Village. Additionally, the city features some of the best Chinese food outside of China.

Richmond is just 25 minutes from downtown Vancouver, and is home to the Vancouver International Airport.

Another draw for visitors is the seaside village of Steveston, with sites spotlighting the area’s salmon canning history. While here, make time to visit the Olympic Oval, where champions skated during the 2010 Olympic Winter Games.
