  Vancouver Chinatown
by meteorologist1

Vancouver's Chinatown is worth a visit because it's somewhat different from other Chinatowns you will see elsewhere. This Chinatown is truly historic because Chinese immigrants have been flocking to this area since the 1850's. But this Chinatown was officially originated in 1885 and is now the largest in Canada. You will notice the buildings and alleys here have history associated with them. The Sam Kee Building located on 8 West Pender Street claims to be the world's narrowest building at only 6 feet in depth. The Dr.Sun Yat-Sen Garden is worth a visit for its classical Chinese garden designs. There's lots more to see here!
