    Amazing piece of BC history. Read carefully for what many people don't know about the Asian, Chinese, and Japanese experience was like. Well preserved and a valuable community heritage site.

    Awesome historic site with a few buildings to go into and look around. You can check out the old cannery, the bunk houses, the women's houses, a few other large buildings and the indoor boat launching system they used during the period. A really cool and beautiful walk. Make a day of it and head to steveston or Garry Point!

    Excellent location, lots of historical information, come on a sunny day and enjoy the early 1900's buildings as you walk along fraser river boardwalk. There are no stores, or food here, but do not worry you are close to Steveston village which has all that good stuff

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.
