|Vancouver Chinatown at East Pender and Main|
|2011 Chinese New Year parade|
Vancouver Chinatown is one of the attractions for visitors to the city. It is 125 years old and is a vibrant, bustling place. There are celebrations, such as the Chinese New Year or Spring festival and the mid-Autumn festival. Food, shopping and sightseeing will make for a memorable visit. In the summer, the night-market is open on weekends.
I usually dash to Chinatown for the meat and vegetables and take the place for granted. I enjoyed myself so much at the CNY parade on Sunday that I plan to visit more often for photos of Chinatown for My World Tuesday. These pictures are the first in a series about Vancouver's Chinatown. I hope you enjoy them and will join me to see the various sights and treats here.
