The Neighbourhood

Designated as a National Historic Site in 2011, Vancouver’s Chinatown is one of the city’s first neighbourhoods, emerging in 1886. The neighbourhood today is distinguished by a unique style blending Chinese and Western architecture.

While still known for the vibrant, colourful shops and retailers historically associated with the area, this unique community has grown to include many new retail concepts, design studios, art galleries, cafes and nightlife, and some of the most exciting new restaurants in the city.
