Welcome to Richmond & Steveston
The region's modern-day Chinatown is easy to reach via Canada Line SkyTrain from Vancouver, making for an easy half-day excursion. There are two distinctly different experiences to be had here. Richmond proper is a utilitarian grid of Asian shopping malls, car parks and (with a bit of delving) some of the best Asian restaurants outside Asia. A little to the south, waterfront Steveston village is second only to Fort Langley in its historical significance, harboring two museums, an afternoon's worth of blustery dyke walks and legendary fish and chips.
