Richmond is 15 km south of Vancouver and boasts a multicultural community of French and Asian descent. This unique mix can be seen in the city’s diverse dining, sightseeing, and shopping options. The city centre covers 3 sq kms and is best explored on foot or bicycle, with vibrant markets and strip malls lining the main streets. Notable sites in central Richmond include the ornate Chinese-inspired architecture at the International Buddhist Temple and Richmond Olympic Oval. 

    Come summertime, nature lovers get to enjoy hours of picnicking and recreational sports in natural areas and city parks, such as Minoru Park and Terra Nova Nature Area. Dolphin and whale watching expeditions let you get up close with these gentle giants. In the evening, Richmond becomes alive with karaoke joints, dance clubs, and live bars playing bluegrass, funk, and folk tunes all night long.
