Not to be Missed: Vancouver Chinatown

Wendy Y.C. Yeh

Being surrounded by mountains, Vancouver is frequently listed as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. When I visited Vancouver, I wanted to discover the lush forests and scenic views of its parks and gardens.
Each season, the landscape of these parks and gardens is painted gloriously with spring plum, summer lotus, autumn leaves, and winter jasmine.
Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden is a perfect place to pause my busy sightseeing schedule, take a breath, and escape into this peaceful oasis. The harmonious elements and traditional construction of the home garden has become a tourists’ attraction over the years. A tour around the garden helped me to fully understand the history and significance of each element.
To visit the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden is to step back in time to 15th century China and visit the garden home of a scholar’s family. I loved this enchanting space because it was imbued with the perfect balance of yin and yang.
Year-round exhibitions and displays, summer theater and concerts, and annual Chinese festivals create joy for the whole community here.
I took time to wander with my tour guide and encountered the nature-inspired worldview that was built into the Garden. Zigzag paths, interesting windows, and moon gates illuminate framed views and ever-changing vistas that present a visitor like me with an unforgettable sense of discovery and peace.
A full city block was designated in the heart of Vancouver Chinatown to Chinese Cultural Center of Greater Vancouver. Chinese Cultural Center of Greater Vancouver was founded in 1973 with extensive community support.
By offering a wide range of educational and cultural programs, the Center is committed to the preservation and introduction of Chinese cultural heritage through the promotion of cultural understanding and development of friendship between Chinese Canadians and the community at large.
It was such a delight to admire the colorful and beautifully constructed Millennium Gate at the entrance of Vancouver Chinatown. It represents Chinatown’s Eastern and Western cultures and celebrates its ethnicity.
In the spring, we see fresh flowers suddenly bursting out of the earth. I understand that they are the result of an imperceptible long and deep accumulation of life force. The previous bitter, cold winter actually prepared their way for life. From observing nature, we cannot help but be optimistic. Because we know that there will always be an end to the bitterly cold season. The beauty and inspiration of Vancouver Chinatown are not to be missed.
