    I mainly come here for the bubble waffles and Daiso. Daiso is a must stop for me. They have some really good stationary and make up items here. I will normally go and grab some bubble waffles and a fr...  more »

    We found the mall on a Sunday afternoon. Headed straight for the two-story Daiso store. Found cheap Canadian souvenirs, which is unusual, since most Daiso stores stock only Japanese merchandise. In th...  more »

    Step from the train station. Very big and very clean Asian mall. Their food court got so many food to choose from, with wide variety. Also attached to Aberdeen Square with more stores.  more »

    I'm really here for just the food court. The stores themselves are kinda meh and somewhat lack decent variety. That being said, the food court is excellent and one of the best Asian ones I have been to. Any place that serves HK milk tea seems to do it correctly and the price is disgustingly reasonable/cheap/affordable. I know I'd pay a premium in other places like Calgary and get half the taste. The arcade in the food court is also a bonus.

    I love many of the stores here, and some of the food options are worth a visit. But if I refuse to try to park here. Be warned: it is a going show in the parking lot on weekends. Parking is tight, lots of big cars, and just too many people. Neighbouring lots and street parking is hard to come by as well. Oddly the mall itself doesn't seem that packed. I theorise that most customers are sitting in their cars trying to find a spot.

    Lots of shopping options and with the Aberdeen Square completed (although not many stores yet) it's easy to walk from one end to the other. The best part is definitely the food court. There are quite a few exceptional selections. My favorite is the 123 Grill. Similar to U-Grill or Mongolie Grill. Another good option is the Bubble Waffle Cafe where you choose your soup base, type of noodle and toppings. The combo meal comes with bubble waffles which is quite good if you are not watching your weight.

    A big mall with lots of asian boutiques, a supermarket (H-Mart), bakery, convenience store (Daiso), a food court and a couple of restaurants. Some restaurants you may need to make a reservation ahead of time because they tend to get full. There is a massive water fountain​ in the center of the mall that used to play water and light musical shows. There is also a food court on the third floor with many food options from snacks and meals to dessert, though mostly all of them only accept cash!!

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.
