Richmond

3.8
On the fringe of greater Vancouver, the city of Richmond has a reputation as one of Canada's greatest melting pots. With an immigrant population of around 60%, the highest of anywhere in the country, Richmond represents the changing face of the nation. They mid-sized city, which sits on Lulu island surrounded by the Fraser River, houses Vancouver's international airport, but requires the protection of dykes, as it sits only 1 m (3.3 ft) above sea level. Richmond's economy was built on agriculture, making the most of the delta area's fertile alluvial soils. Richmond is in British Columbia.

Where to stay in Richmond

Many travelers visit Richmond on their way to or from Vancouver International Airport, so the city's accommodations cater primarily to visitors in transit. Bridgeport Road, which leads directly to the airport, offers the best selection, with comfortable but rather dull chain hotels offering a clean, comfortable place to rest before a long flight. If you're looking for something with a bit more character, head to Blundell Road to choose from a range of independent guesthouses and bed and breakfasts.
