“Vancouver with its stunning snowcapped mountains, beautiful sandy beaches and delicious food options is sure to make you fall in love with the city.
However, Vancouver has earned a reputation for being an expensive city. If you look in the right place, there is plenty to see and do in the city for free.
Here are the top 5 free things to do in Vancouver:
Wander the streets of Vancouver’s Chinatown and explore a bit of the city’s history. Once home to a large population of Chinese immigrants, Chinatown today is a shadow of its former self.
Regardless, exploring the neighbourhood is an interesting outing. Be sure to walk through the orate Millennium Gate which symbolizes Chinatown’s “Journey Through Time” and uses elements of Eastern and Western symbols in its design. The world’s narrowest commercial building, the Sam Kee Building, can be found on Pender St. It’s shockingly only six feet wide!
Finally, wander through the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Park to enjoy a tranquil Chinese garden (not to be confused with the nearby Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Garden which has an admission fee).”
