Explore Chinatown's intriguing sights and fragrances and walk along the crowded, bustling area where shop owners loudly advertise their wares. Stores sell fruit and vegetables, jade, rattan, brass, china, silk, and brocade.
Browse through the cramped, incense-perfumed stores, unearthing delicately embroidered tablecloths or blouses. Enticing aromas waft from bakeries and restaurants.
Wander along the busy streets, dodging women laden with bulging shopping bags, and admire streetlights decorated with golden dragons and phone booths topped with pagoda style roofs.
Glimpse into a Chinese pharmacy and listen to knowledgeable tour guides explaining the century-old herbal and medicinal culture. Partake in a formal Chinese Tea Ceremony and learn the art of brewing tea.
A visit and private guided tour of the Dr. Sun Yat Sen Garden (The only one of its kind outside China), is one of the highlights of the tour.
This classical Chinese Garden reflects the Taoist philosophy of yin and yang. Light is balanced by dark as hard and rugged is balanced by soft and smooth.
Enjoy a superb Dim Sum lunch combination at the Floata Seafood Restaurant, while savoring the memories of an enlightening encounter with Vancouver's "Orient".
It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you'll share with friends for years to come.
