  • Going to open around 7 am, and already long queue! Put in still takes about 20 minutes. Number of shops are overwhelming! However, many Asian dishes. You can shelter from the rain, but it has been raining in the middle where there is no raincoat required. So is that too many people, put up an umbrella.

  • Food is always good, a few new stalls this year. Chicken and the fries were both really tasty. Pro tip: don't wait in line for hours - go with a group of friends or meet some strangers and buy the fast pass. 7 admissions for $25 and there is no line. You can save any unused passes as well.
  • An amazing array of East Asian delicacies. The prices are high but in line with the festival atmosphere. The venue is extremely crowded and we waited a almost an hour to get inside. My favourite was the coffee in a bag and meat skewers. Carnival attractions are fun for the kiddies but not as amazing as the food. Very cheap admission.
  • It is fun to try a bunch of food (and there is good food there!) and you can find things you didn't know you needed at reasonable prices (this is my yearly spot to buy cute socks). But... it does get crowded, expect lines to get in and lines for food (recommendation: go in a group using a single zoom pass), and don't expect healthy food! It's best to go with at least 4 people so you can make the most out of food sampling.
  • A pretty touristy thing to do when in Richmond. There is an admission fee (but it's really nothing, especially if you end up eating in there). They mostly sell food and misc. goods, like socks, fidget spinners, cell phone cases, etc. They also have live musical performances. It's a good idea to bring cash to this, because most places only take it exclusively as a form of payment. You will be overpaying for almost any food item in there, but you will have fun.
  • Definitely better now than it was a few years ago. Very organized, lots of parking and people directing traffic to help things run smoothly. Lots of yummy options for food and drink. Sort of annoying that some popular places were closed (the Rain Bulb and the bus that sells deep fried chocolate bars) when you're only open 3 days a week for a few months of the year I think you should be open on those days but I understand things happen.

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.
