Multicultural, diverse and dynamic – just a few words that describe Richmond.

Located just 20 minutes south of downtown Vancouver, Richmond's 17 islands in the mouth of the Fraser River are packed with things to do.

Enjoy Asian dining and shopping in the Golden Village district, or learn about the British Columbia fishing industry at historic sites in Steveston. From visiting huge religious temples to cycling through city parks, from taking wine tours to attending shows at local theatres or visiting the Richmond Olympic Oval, variety is everything in British Columbia's fourth-largest city.

Dining and Shopping

Richmond's population is about 60 percent Asian, and that's reflected in its mouthwatering selection of 400-odd Asian restaurants. Affordably priced Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean, and Malaysian dishes abound. Try Japanese sukiyaki hotpot cuisine at Posh or dim sum at Shiang Garden Seafood Restaurant. Or dine at the sprawling food courts at Asian-themed shopping malls such as Aberdeen Centre, Yaohan Centre and Parker Place.
